OMIZZOLLO, Poliana  and  ROSA SILVA, Milena da. The view of the educating agent on the psychical constitution of hosted children. Rev. Subj. [online]. 2018, vol.18, n.2, pp.105-116. ISSN 2359-0769.

This study aims to understand, through the view of educating agents from institutions that host children separated from their mothers, as they are psychically constituted, considering the relevance of the maternal function for the emotional development of the baby. From the perspective of the agents, we reflect on the possibilities of development that each child finds when he is deprived of the coexistence with his family of origin and welcomed in an institution. Thus, interviews were conducted with four professionals who work directly in the care of infants and young children who are in shelters in Porto Alegre, and analyzed vignettes of a clinical case that drove this writing. The approach made possible the understanding of several factors involved in the arduous task of becoming a subject within a host institution, emphasizing the possibilities that emerge when we consider a space for clinical listening. We thus perceive that a bond based on trust and reliability is possible, but is usually entangled with the inherent difficulties of function.

Keywords : shelter; psychic constitution; mother-baby relationship; deprivation.
