COSTA, Florença Ávila de Oliveira; COSTA, Liana Fortunato  y  CONCEICAO, Maria Inês Gandolfo. The adolescent who committed extrafamilial sexual offense: motivation and suffering. Rev. Subj. [online]. 2014, vol.14, n.1, pp. 94-104. ISSN 2359-0769.

This article seeks the subjective meanings that adolescent sexual offenders give to the violence committed. This issue is rarely known and discussed in Brazil. The study shows aspects of the subjectivity of two adolescents based on clinical psychological interviews analysis. The study of the subjectivity of these adolescents allows us to know the offenders' social reality and singularity, so they can have access to a specific care in order to stop sexual offenses. We used the Theory of Subjectivity of González Rey and his constructive and interpretative method. The results showed that the violence configures a landmark that limits the development of these adolescents in both, social and individual dimensions. There are many contradictions that constitute their subjectivity: curiosity and repression of their sexuality; sex experimentation and regret; submissive relationship with their controlling and overbearing mother; desire and guilt. We highlight the relevance of ethics and social commitment of the psychology in facing this complex situation. Our scope is not just to promote psychic healthy development, but also to undertake the interruption of sexual and social violence cycle.

Palabras clave : adolescent; sexual offense; extrafamilial violence; subjectivity.
