BONFATTI, Sofia Creato  and  GRANATO, Tania Mara Marques. "Too much weight for one person": interactive narratives of teenagers about the loss of an institutional shelter. Vínculo [online]. 2021, vol.18, n.1, pp. 32-41. ISSN 1806-2490.

The aim of this study is to understand the emotional experience of 14 sheltered adolescents in the face of the possibility of helplessness considering the usual prolonged stay of the adolescent in the institutional shelter situation. This is a qualitative psychoanalytic research in which we adopted an Interactive Narrative (NI) in two group interviews and one individual interview followed by a reflection on the theme investigated, in addition to an individual interview, followed by a moment of reflection with a teenager who did not have the opportunity to participate in the group. The analysis of narrative material resulted in fields of affective-emotional meaning. We highlight the emblematic field "It's too much weight for one person", which reveals the successive homelessness episodes and the consequent helplessness experienced by the young people as a result of the overlapping vulnerabilities that surround the participants' lives.

Keywords : Adolescence; Shelters; Intrafamilial Violence; Interactive Narrative; Psychoanalysis.
