PEREIRA, Marcelo Ricardo. A clinic to harbor today's "Wayward Youth". Estilos clin. [online]. 2019, vol.24, n.3, pp.408-418. ISSN 1415-7128.

Starting from the Wayward youth, Aichhorn's, Deprivation and Delinquency, Winnicott's, and writings by Freud, Lacan, Tizio, Minnicelli, Ponnou and Lacadée, we propose possible interventions to rescue the subjectivity of the adolescent complicated by his delict act. Through the word, without giving in to the pressures of consumption and society, we show how it is possible to deal with the segregating logic of the dominant discourse with its tendency to judicialize and erase the subjective dimension of the young. We call socio-educational measures of "exception" and "reception" of antisocial subjects the principles of "subjective urgency and psychoanalytic clinic", but not without asking: The "analytical situation" requires the development of certain structures, such as the presence of a symptom and the handling of the transference, but how to carry out a psychoanalytically oriented intervention without many young people experience both symptom and transference? How to perform the "subjective urgency and psychoanalytic clinic" without nor a symptom being formalized and nor directed to a supposed knowing as it happens in the standard clinic? What is more, in times of blankness of the Ideal of the Ego and the decline of the paternal imago, how to rescue the place of reference without this functioning as a tyrant, when massively present, or provoke panic, when extensively absent?

Keywords : youth; social-educational exception measures; psychoanalytic clinic of the subjective urgency; Ideal of the Ego.
