For purposes of studying and probing into our body image in adolescence, four main theoretical pillars have been defined: the speculate image, self punishment, passage to the act and the body phenomena. Speculate image and self punishment are elements that define the object of research proposed in this work, while the third and fourth pillars fall represent its consequences. The main hypothesis aims to demonstrate what happens at the moment of the subject’s psychic constitution when the clinical structure is defined - neurosis or psychosis - in cases where psychopathological changes in body image predominate.

Keywords : Image speculate; Psychosis; Double speculate; Dassage to the act; Self punishment; Paranoia.
