WOLFF, Lana dos Santos; AMPARO, Deise Matos do; OLIVEIRA, Roberto Menezes de  and  CHAGNON, Jean Yves. Problematic narcissistic-identity in adolescent sex abusers: Contributions from the Parisian Rorschach School. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2016, vol.15, n.3, pp. 318-326. ISSN 1677-0471.

This article analyzes the narcissistic-identitary problematic of adolescents who commit sexual abuse. It starts with the hypothesis that in adolescence, a psychic rearrangement occurs and difficulties begin within the psychic apparatus that exercises the stop-excitation function, which may lead to a violent act. We used the Rorschach Method in the French Approach of Parisian School, with a group of four adolescents aged 15 to 18 who had committed acts of sexual violence. The interpretation of the protocols considered the investment in the limits; the narcissistic defense and its effects, investment in the representation of the self, the identity and the identification. The study concluded that the difficulty of defining the limits, identification problematic, inhibition and limited drive management, in addition to the establishment of specular relations using narcissistic defenses indicated flaws in the process of subject choice.

Keywords : adolescence; sexual abuse; Rorschach Test; identity; narcissism.
