CRUZ, Maria José Rodrigues da. A helpless mother, a child who calls for help, and the "network" that cares. Vínculo [online]. 2021, vol.18, n.1, pp.63-71. ISSN 1806-2490.

ABSTRACT This article addresses the complexity of building a line of work between public facilities in different territories, where situations of helplessness predominate. It describes what it was possible to align between equipment and professionals from different backgrounds to provide the basic support for a mother and daughter to move on. Their care took place in the Basic Health Unit at the request of the child's pediatrician. At four years of age, the child refused to eat and accept the basic care that the mother provided, confronting her. That increased the mother's psychic disorganization and uncertainties while facing her own demons. The mother's history shows significant losses at early age. In 2004, she was diagnosed as schizophrenic, then she got pregnant in 2013 and the child's father rejected it. No one demanded anything from him, and the mother raised her daughter making all kinds of sacrifices. Family bonds were deteriorating and, in times of uncertain bonds, vulnerability seemed to prowl around those whose helplessness had condemned them. The theoretical contribution used is from Classical Psychoanalysis and those dedicated to the study of Psychoanalysis of Bonding Configurations.

Palavras-chave : Helplessness; Psychic disorganization; Uncertain links; Trauma; Caring network.
