KLAUTAU, Perla; WINOGRAD, Monah e BEZERRA JR., Benilton. Normatividade e plasticidade: algumas considerações sobre a clínica psicanalítica com pacientes neurológicos. Rev. Mal-Estar Subj. [online]. 2009, vol.9, n.2, pp. 551-574. ISSN 1518-6148.
Once exceeded the limits of a fundamentally interpretative technique, psychoanalysis cannot be restricted to the sphere of neurotic suffering and moves its scope on to other fields of mental pathology, be them from a psychogenic origin or from disturbances of organic nature that may cause suffering to the subject - as is frequently the case with bearers of brain lesions. The ways in which this can be done demand technical and theoretical investigations since this type of clinic differs considerably in many points from the classical psychoanalytical practice.. The main purpose of this paper is to provide subsidies - through articulation of Winnicott´s concepts such as dependence, reliability on the environment, feeling of space-time continuity, and the concept of "normativeness" as postulated by Canguilhem - for a theoretical and practical approach that may give bearings to a psychoanalytical practice with patients that carry neurological disturbances. The completion of this task demands, in first place, an investigation into the concepts of cerebral plasticity, epigenesis and "normativeness". After this is accomplished we will finally make some considerations about psychoanalytical practice with neurologically impaired patients.
