Incestual families

Belinda Mandelbaum About the author

This article focuses on a family configuration called, according to Racamier's conception (1995), incestual family which is characterized by the denial of the differences of sexes and generations. It is understood that this family configuration reflects elements of contemporary social life as described by Baudrillard (2009), among others authors. A clinical case is presented focusing on those issues.
