Abstract
This study aimed to discuss the effects of the rupture in psychosexual development due to sexual abuse in childhood, based on Psychoanalysis, from a case study. Psychoanalysis theory states that the first years of life are the most important for the child’s personality development and are divided into stages. Although related to sexuality, those stages are basically pregenital (oral, anal, phallic), in the sense that everything is symbolic and not yet genital, in the proper sense of the sexual activity and prepare the child for the final stage (genital), that should appear in adolescence. Thus, the suffering and consequences of child abuse in psychological development in adult life. A case report from the Psychology Clinic from a Brazilian University was chosen as an example to illustrate the discussion of this study. Analysis showed that the prevailing incidence of sexual abuse in childhood is in girls, inside the family, as well as the negative consequences of abuse in affective relations. As a conclusion, when considering the psychosexual constitution, sexual abuse is probably the main cause of neurotic disorders, including the ones related to sexual disorganization in adult life. Consequently, it is adamant to prevent and protect children at risk for abuse, to prevent psychological difficulties in adult life.
