TACHIBANA, Miriam  and  BARBOSA, Paula Carvalho. Listening to the play in a child sexual violence outpatient clinic. Est. Inter. Psicol. [online]. 2021, vol.12, n.1, suppl.1, pp.88-114. ISSN 2236-6407.

Considering the concern of the professionals who join the protection network to avoid secondary victimization of children who have suffered sexual violence, the best way to obtain their testimony in a minimally invasive manner has been debated. This paper aimed to present an experience report of a specialized outpatient clinic, located in the countryside of Minas Gerais, where specialized listening is carried out. Based on the narrative of a clinical case, considerations are highlighted about: 1) the use of playful strategies as a way of favoring the emotional communication of the child, as well as strengthening the child psychically; 2) the importance of sensitive listening to the ambivalent feelings that the child may have towards the aggressor, even after declaring the violence to which she was subjected. This experience report is expected to enrich the discussion about listening alternatives for this vulnerable population.

Keywords : sexual abuse; psychoanalytic listening; domestic violence.
