Trauma and abuse: reflections about traumatic origin of aggressiveness based on clinical experience

Abstract

The article addresses the issue of abuse and mistreatment in childhood, through clinical experiences carried out in the Dominican Republic. A meeting with J, a Dominican 7-year-old child, took place to explore the traumatic outcome and devastating consequences that situations of abuse and mistreatment can have on the emotional development of a child, allowing him/her to contextualize some characteristics of the abuser as well as the social and relational environment in which the child develops. Therefore, through a series of clinical studies, we question the link between childhood trauma, educational styles and socio-cultural factors, considering the hypothesis of possible trauma due to violence even in its social forms.

Keywords:
trauma, aggressiveness, childhood, psychoanalysis.
