Title: A Case Of Trauma And Attempted Suicide In An Adolescent Patient
Author: MacEdo M.M.K.
Werlang B.S.G.
Abstract: This paper approaches the existing relationship between trauma, psychic pain and attempted suicide. The contributions of authors in psychoanalysis- regarding the psychic functioning in the face of the domain of the unrepresentable-allow for producing a psychoanalytical understanding of attempted suicide. By means of a clinical illustration, the interrelation existing between trauma, the predominance of the unrepresentable and the psychic dynamics taking part in the dramaticity of a suicide attempt is sought and explored. Hence, such analysis of how one may think regarding attempted suicide, in the way it is named in this paper, as a pain-act, which denounces as it discharges, is the despaired attempt made by the subject in order to get rid of the psychic pain. © 2011 The International Federation of Psychoanalytic Societies.
