GUIMARAES, Flora Corrêa  and  PEREIRA, Caciana Linhares. The child and the "announced death": Considerations about analytical listening in pediatric oncology. Estilos clin. [online]. 2018, vol.23, n.2, pp. 242-261. ISSN 1415-7128.

The article presents a process of elaboration that comes from listening to children in health institutions - in particular, cancer treatment institutions - fundamentally questioning the child's experience of death. By problematizing the incidences of medical discourse in the child's experience and the contributions offered by analytical listening, the article aims to contribute to the interlocution between Psychoanalysis and the field of Health, sustaining a look at what is singular, especially in the context of "announced death", to the detriment of the sick subject taken purely as a biological organism.

Keywords : psicanálise; hospital; discurso médico; criança; morte; psychoanalysis; hospital; medical speech; child; death.
