Subjetividad y procesos cognitivos

SCILLETTA, Delia. Intersubjectivity in relational treatments manifesting situations of violence: Thinking processes in a hospitalized female patient and her position in relation to her interlocutors. Subj. procesos cogn. [online]. 2018, vol.22, n.1, pp.101-123. ISSN 1852-7310.

In the context of the complexity of work with couples and families, the author focuses on the thinking process and position of a female patient, hospitalized in a neuropsychiatric hospital (due to episodes of violence and delusions), in relation to her different interlocutors. The author bases this study on the Freudian definition of thinking process as a flow of psychical, libidinal energy on its path towards action, towards discharge, which evolves from the unconscious to manifestation. The patient's positions are also observed through the study of intersubjective links established in joint interviews during her treatment while hospitalized. For this purpose, the author applies a psychoanalytic method of investigation, the David Liberman algorithm (DLA), which explores wishes, defenses (including their state), and intersubjective combinations. The instrument applied to the sample is the chart for the study of thinking processes.
