AMARAL, Rebeca Espinosa Cruz  and  COUTINHO, Luciana Gageiro. The unbearable female enigma in a case of self-injury in adolescence. Trivium [online]. 2021, vol.13, n.2, pp. 21-36. ISSN 2176-4891.

This article was built from the study of the case of a self-injury teenager, an increasingly notable practice among teenagers, especially girls. Analyzing the singularity of acting in the case, it extracts questions concerning her relationship with the mother and the enigma of the feminine, initially brought about by complaints to the mother, which were able during the treatment to unveil itself in a demand for love formulated in her own name. Therefore, it aims to bring theoretical contributions about becoming a woman in adolescence and its possible relationship with self- injury practiced by girls through the analysis of the case articulated to a bibliographic review.
