"Psychoanalysis is not like any other form of therapeutics".

On constructions in psychoanalysis.
By Diana Chorne
Narrative and construction are part of the psychoanalytic treatment in the context of the current human suffering, traumas and discomforts. In this setting, the dimension of the signifier and sense has shown its therapeutic nature, shaping feelings of vitality, reality and social bond.
A reading that accounts for a reverse -that which results from myth and fiction upon cutting and separation- is still called for. Here, detritus and marginalities exist in a logical framework in which surprise is generated from abduction.
Clinical vignettes
How S. discovered the holographic world.
By Lic. Inés Sotelo
The experience of psychoanalysis, the device of psychoanalysis and any events that take place within that framework are considered analytical acts, since they bring about the transformation, the subversion of the subject, insofar as that which is transformed within such device cannot revert to its former status.

"The woman, logically, is always more long-suffering".
By Lic. Beatriz Bacco
The purpose of this work is to describe a patient's first interview at a private mental health center. The interview -during which the patient was invited to speak freely- was conducted by the patient's analyst. As the analyst-in-training who witnessed the interview, I will try to account for what I heard from a Freudian-Lacanian psychoanalytic point of view.

Theodicy, common sense and the success of psychoanalysis in Argentina
By Sergio Eduardo Visacovsky
A lot has been said and written about the predominance of psychoanalysis in Argentina, compared to other Latin American and European countries. Master of a large field which comprises an heterogeneous group of practices involved in the treatment of mental ailments, psychoanalysis continues to prevail due to the large number of followers it has among psychoanalysts and patients, the number and importance of psychoanalytic institutions, and the extent to which it has become widespread in the general population, especially in Buenos Aires, the city where it has had the greatest development in Argentina.

The pianos were there, in the middle class dining-rooms, and it was important and desirable that children played the piano. Music, both "classical" (no better name has been created for it) and "academic" (an even worse denomination) was greatly appreciated. Playing the piano was then, to certain extent, a forced choice.

The logics of exclusion: a response from the real.
By Carlos Gustavo Motta
People who suffer from AIDS are sometimes denied basic rights such as food or housing, and they are even fired from jobs they are perfectly able to perform. Moreover, they are sometimes rejected by their community or -in the most tragic instances- by their own family. The social and economic tensions associated to the HIV/AIDS complex constitute a major political and cultural problem.
