Estelle Louët: yesterday, i killed my father

When the parricidal fantasy leads to a homicidal passage to the act, even an unsuccessful one, what are we to think about the obstacles to the psychic processing of excitation, which is particularly intense in adolescence? Using the projective tests of Alban, the author offers an analysis focusing on two axes, that of anality and that of perversion. It reveals that the moorings of anality are not structuring and that the capacities for drive-binding have been overloaded by the intensity of incestuous and murderous wishes. This leads to the passage to the act, which is equivalent to an attempt to “kill” the excitation.
