STEIN, Júlia Schommer  e  MOREIRA, Mariana Calesso. Spouse's perspective about the oncologic disease of the partner: from trauma to the possibility of re-signification. Pensando fam. [online]. 2021, vol.25, n.2, pp. 48-64. ISSN 1679-494X.

The emotional repercussions of cancer can reach the spouse with almost the same intensity as the patient, justifying a parallel with the notion of trauma for Psychoanalysis. The spouses' ability to reframe this trauma allows an approximation with the concept of resilience. This cross-sectional, qualitative, exploratory and descriptive study aimed to understand the perspective of the spouse about the partner's cancer illness, analyzing its relation with the concepts of trauma, resignification and resilience for Psychoanalysis. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 11 spouses and analyzed through Thematic Content Analysis, obtaining 4 thematic axes (Emotional complexity of experience; Access to traumatic; Vicissitudes of the resignification process; Expectations for the future). It was concluded that, due to the complexity of the experience, the recognition of trauma and its resignification are not always possible, indicating the importance of spouses as objects of care and study of health professionals.
