Abstract

Considering the scarcity of investigations that relate family dynamics, interracial relations and subjectivity, this study aims to understand the psychological suffering related to racism in children from interracial families and its repercussions on the constitution of the subject. The psychoanalytic approach was chosen as a theoretical-conceptual reference. This is a collective clinical case study. Participating in the study will be seven black participants of both sexes, aged 18 to 30 years, coming from homes in which one of the spouses is considered to be socially white and the other, black. In order to collect data, an open, in-depth interview will be used, introduced by two triggering questions: "Tell me the regional and racial origin of your family? "And"How the race is spoken and experienced by the members of your family. family?". From the enunciation of these questions, the interview will be conducted in a free way, privileging the participants' associations. The interviews will be conducted individually and audio-taped with permission from the participants. The content will be transcribed literally and in full. Subsequently, the data will be submitted to analysis guided by the psychoanalytical framework, which is anchored in the listening and countertransference of the researcher in relation to the corpus composed by the transcripts of the interviews. The results are expected to contribute to elucidate some aspects of the relationship between the subjective constitution of the black subject in the interracial family and racism as a source of psychic suffering. Investigating the repercussions of racism on the subjectivity of children of interracial families makes possible the development of new understandings that invite psychology professionals and their theoretical productions to consider the suffering provoked by racism and its unique implications in interracial families.
