The Influence of Psychosocial-Affective Factors on Language Delay

Research Article of International Journal of Psychological Research and Reviews The Influence of Psychosocial-Affective Factors on Language Delay Bruna Vanessa Gomes de Araújo1 , Chirlene Santos da Cunha Moura2 , Me. Ivonaldo Leidson Barbosa Lima2 , Ma. Maria Edvany de Melo Pereira3  1 IESP 2 UNIPÊ 3 UNICORP According to Nóbrega and Minervino (2011) , language is a corticocerebral func-tion that develops based on the environment and stimuli to which individuals are ex-posed, as well as being a vehicle of communication, since language allows to establish in-terpersonal relationships. Since childhood, people use some form of human communication, which is not composed solely by the use of words and phrases. Language development begins through the contact of babies with other people, through crying, looking, gestures, interaction be-tween mother and child, among other forms of communication and interaction. Thus, adults play a crucial role during this period by establishing a channel of affection and communication with the child, since adults are responsible for intermediating the baby’s relations with the world, through how they communicates with the child (AMORIM et al., 2012) . Based on this principle, Carvalho (2015) reports that the early years are an essen-tial period for the development of language skills, as many factors influence the language acquisition and development, such as: innate biological conditions; affection; cognitive, memory, organic-functional skills and the contexts in which the child is inserted. All children follow similar steps in the language development process, although it is susceptible to variations caused by some factors, such as: biological; psychological and social/environmental factors. In addition, an imbalance of these factors may slow this process, thus causing a language delay. Giacheti and Lindau (2016) explain that language delay is not associated with organic disorders or any other developmental problem, whether intellectual disability or genetic syndromes, since this is ...

Between the Body and the Word: the Effects of Language on a Suffering Body

Research Article of International Journal of Psychological Research and Reviews Between the Body and the Word: the Effects of Language on a Suffering Body Bruno Soares Rocha1*, Pedro Gabriel Bezerra da Fonsêca2, Mariana de Azevedo Nascimento3 1Graduado em Psicologia pela UFPE.

Psicanalista Membro do Traço Freudiano Veredas Lacanianas Escola de Psicanálise;3Graduanda de Psicologia na Faculdade Pernambucana de Saúde – FPS Objective: This work has the purpose of analyzing some theoretical reasons which led Dr. Sigmund Freud to distance himself from the Neurology field, consequently creating his own new investigation method called Psychoanalysis, which opened an entirely new field of comprehension and intervention of the treatment of the discontent in its psychic cause. By distance from the Neurological field we can understand the creation of Psychoanalysis, and a conceptual shift where the body is no longer a cause, but an object: in this case, a discursive object. Results: The main consequence of this turnout was the vouching of the effects of language in the sick individual’s body, specifically in reference of the many forms of pain and discontent. Conclusion: The Psychoanalysis, thus founded in the word and in the language, has become fundamental to the health sciences for the understanding of all forms of illness, which can be better understood through the patient’s words and their due listening. Keywords: pain, psychoanalysis, Freud, language, body ...
