Psicopatologia evolutiva de las significaciones individuales


  • Luis Joyce-Moniz


Palabras clave:

psicologia evolutiva


La lectura evolutiva de la psicopatologia se ha llevado a cabo a varios niveles, aunque no esta relacionado o integrado. La presente refIeccion incide sobre alguna de ellas. relacionandolas con los sindromes o trastornos del humor/afecto, la ansiedad y  los trastornos de personalidad.

De este modo consideraremos en primer lugar las posibilidades de una continuidad/discontinuidad de los sintomas actitudinales y emocionales entre la psicopatologia de la infancia y de la edad adulta, lo que plantea, inevitablemente, la cuestion del determinismo de una sobre la otra, o la de su relativa independencia.

Posteriormente se examine la continuidad/discontinuidad de los sintomas cognitivos y, mds en particular,  de los significados individuales, lo que plantea no solo la cuestion de la relacion entre cognicion y afecto, sino  de la competicion entre significados y del dominio de unos sobre otros en ciertos niveles de desarrollo.

Como introduccion  a  unn  psicologia evolutiva  de  las significaciones se  propone un modelo dialéctico con cinco niveles de significacion , relativos a algunos sindromes afectivos y  ansiogenos y principalmente, a los trastornos  de personalidad.
