BOSSA, Débora Ferreira  e  NEVES, Anamaria Silva. Strange, familiar and pathos: psychoanalytic apprehensions on disabled child adoption. Estilos clin. [online]. 2017, vol.22, n.3, pp. 455-467. ISSN 1981-1624.

Supported by psychoanalytic research, this study aimed to understand the active psychic movements in a mother's choice of adopting a disabled child diagnosed with cerebral palsy. The interlocution between the elements strange (unheimlich), familiar (heimlich) and passion (pathos) was carried out for the analysis of the case. The psychoanalytic analysis indicated implications for the mother-child linkage as a condition for their psychic survival, the demand for a disabled child as a maternal resource to revisit the marks of their own history, and maternal overinvestment that integrally restored her motherhood.

Palavras-chave : adoption; cerebral palsy; psychoanalysis.
