BRANDAO JUNIOR, Pedro Moacyr Chagas  and  CANAVEZ, Fernanda. O corpo na contemporaneidade: notas preliminares sobre a prática de autolesão em adolescentes. Analytica [online]. 2018, vol.7, n.13, pp. 179-191. ISSN 2316-5197.

The objective of the investigation is to specify the contribution of a listening experience guided by psychoanalytic's ethical principles, aimed at adolescents who practice intentional acts of self-injury or self-mutilation without the intention of suicide. The article explores the issue as a contemporary problem with increasing demand for psychic treatment. It also delimits the theoretical foundation on the contemporary symptoms and the methodology of research adopted by psychoanalysis. The subjective function of the self-injury practice is questioned for adolescents, as well as whether it is a new form of presentation of the symptoms in the contemporaneity. Forms of suffering that accompany the new modes of subjectivation and cultural organizations, but may be useful on revealing the clinical structures already known and worked by psychoanalytic theory.

Keywords : Self-injury; Adolescence; Body; Clinic; Psychoanalysis.
