CARDOSO, Marta Rezende. Recusa ao ato na adolescência: uma "reação subjetiva negativa"?. Ágora (Rio J.) [online]. 2011, vol.14, n.1, pp.21-33. ISSN 1516-1498.

Refusal to acting in adolescence: a "negative subjective reaction?". We study the issue of psychological violence in adolescence, in certain pathologies of the act, particularly the clinical situations marked by the negative of that register: the radical refusal to acting. This is manifested in the delay in entering adulthood, in the withdrawal behavior of certain adolescents who seem to "resist" overcoming the adolescent condition. In spite of the apparent contradiction, we place the "resource to the act" and the "refusal to acting" in the clinical field of the pathologies of the act: the ego acts in an extreme defense, which in its basis has the insistence of a traumatic dimension of passiveness in front of the drive.

Keywords : adolescence; violence; passiveness; appeal to the act; a refusal to acting.
