DE LIMA, Cláudia Henschel  and  LOPES, Ana Flavia Pedrosa. The conceptual elaboration of freud's theory of triggering and stabilization. Rev. Subj. [online]. 2019, vol.19, n.3, pp. 1-11. ISSN 2359-0769.

The starting point of the paper is to show the relevance and timeliness of Freud's theory of psychosis. In this sense, the objective is to retake the literature aiming to delimit an inaugural hypothesis about the triggering and the stabilization, in which the disturbance of the drive functioning was already constituted as an important factor in the psychic etiology of its triggering and the delirium, as a psychic work repair, stabilization. To this end, the article exposes a survey of Freudian references to show the epistemological development of the etiological research whose specificity lies in 1: Considering the etiology of psychosis in light of the drive invasion; 2: Isolate, through the concept of rejection, a specific psychic process of defense against the drive which results in the loss of reality; and 3: Define the function of delirium as restorative, a restorer of reality.

Keywords : psychosis; triggering; stabilization; delirium; psychoanalysis; psychopathology.
