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

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.

Words and silences of love.
By Lic. Sergio Marcelo Zabalza
One of Pablo Neruda's most famous poems begins with the line: "I like for you to be still: it is as though you were absent". According to many people, this is one of the most accomplished verses in world literature. Perhaps because its tone glides with the tempo of something gratuitous, whose efficient witticism reveals more through what it suggests than through what it actually states.

"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.

Superego resistance: negative therapeutic reaction.
By Dra. Marta Gerez Ambertín

The current debate on the negative therapeutic reaction (N.T.R.) as a form of superego resistance is here discussed, in order to explain the clinical specificity of the N.T.R. within the analytic device. The difference between N.T.R., negative transference and character types is established. From the Guilt Clover, the mute form of guilt is highlighted as a need for punishment (essential bastion of the superego resistance). The importance of the mourning for the a object as possible break from the fence of the N.T.R. in the analytic cure is emphasized.[1]

Three aunts.
By Dr. Jorge Bekerman
Lidia s childhood was atypical, to say the least. An "only child", she owed this peculiar filial status to a tragic event: the death under ambiguous circumstances of a baby who, had it not died during labor, would have been her elder sister; a sister, by the way, who was dead but not gone.
