MELO, Carla Borim Mirachi  and  COUTO, Luis Flávio Silva. The issue of hospital institution discourses from the Lacanian psychoanalysis. Psicol. estud. [online]. 2012, vol.17, n.2, pp.341-347. ISSN 1413-7372.

This article analyses the relation between discourses and the particularities of psychoanalysis practice at the General Hospital, from a Lacanian perspective. Through narration of researcher's professional experiences, social connections established in hospital institution were described and respective questions and relevant issues were outlined. Additionally, the different discourse modes were critically reviewed and the conclusion was that some social connections in hospital environment are imperative. The psychoanalysis practitioner was also evaluated and discussed as to what could have been done to establish a balance between discourses. Finally, we concluded that the practitioner personal analysis was fundamental for the work she carried out at the studied hospital. That is because, supported by the analyst's discourse, she allowed herself to transit through radical discourses and, therefore, provide conditions to have the subjectivity considered in the hospital environment.

Keywords : Lacanian psychoanalysis; general hospital; discourses in Lacan.
