POZZATO, Vanessa Gama  and  VORCARO, Angela Maria Resende. Approximations and distinctions between autisms and infantile psychosis: conditions to the alienation to language. Analytica [online]. 2014, vol.3, n.5, pp. 137-156. ISSN 2316-5197.

This article proposes a better understanding of the clinical diversity often named as psychosis and, at times, as autism, punctuating some approximations and distinctions between the two categories. In order to do so, we will make use of the Lacanian notion of alienation, which is referred to an operation that is constitutive of the subject. In addition, we will review the theoretical elaborations of many psychoanalysts who deal with psychopathologies from this standpoint. We will conclude by reasserting the importance of distinguishing autisms and psychosis in treatment's direction.

Keywords : Psychoanalysis; psychosis; autisms; treatment.
