CIDADE, Natália de Oliveira de Paula  y  ZORNIG, Silvia Maria Abu-Jamra. Self-mutilations in adolescents: reflections on the body and time. Estilos clin. [online]. 2021, vol.26, n.1, pp. 129-144. ISSN 1415-7128.

The aim of this article is to analyze the phenomenon of self-mutilations in adolescents proposing an articulation between the body and the archaic dimension of time. Self-mutilations are characterized by the act of voluntarily injuring one's own body, with no conscious intention of death. The body manifests suffering that goes beyond psychic limits, finding a radical way to express what makes him suffer. This radical answer shows the complexity of the beginnings of the psychic constitution. In this scenario, self-mutilations in adolescents are understood as a current route through which some archaic experiences present themselves. The self-mutilations combine, in a short circuit of time, past and present, opening new paths for the reformulation of unrepresentable experiences.

Palabras clave : self-mutilation; adolescence; body; archaic.
