MARCOS, Cristina Moreira  and  MENDONCA, Renata Lucindo. The psychoanalytic intervention research with adolescents: : what they tell us about pregnancy and motherhood from the conversation. Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2017, vol.23, n.2, pp. 707-727. ISSN 1677-1168.

We sought to question, from the discussion of some cases, the meaning of pregnancy in adolescence today. If adolescents today can live a certain sexual freedom without becoming pregnant, why is pregnancy in this period of life still happening and is considered a problem by society and public policies around the world? And, mainly, why do the adolescents get pregnant? This problem is approached from the perspective of psychoanalysis. The practice of the Conversation, methodology adopted by us, maintains the psychoanalytical objective of listening to the unconscious and uniting the treatment to the research. It allowed us to examine the meaning and function of pregnancy from the singularity of each one and to question our hypothesis: If pregnancy in adolescence could in some cases be a response to be a woman and an address to the Other.
