The psychological function in the anti-violence centers, predisposed to take charge of women victims of violence, goes through different challenges linked both to structural elements, such as the few funding that allow only a brief clinical intervention, and to the peculiarity of the clinical relationship permeated by the dimension of emergency, from the contact with the limit and the feminine declination. Through a clinical case it becomes evident that a psychoanalytic lis-tening can, however, start a first elaboration of the complex trauma, allowing the creation of connections that facilitate the inscription of the woman in her narration and the initial restoration of the bond with the other.
Keywords: Complex trauma, intimate partner violence, psychoanalytic listening, testimony, emergency clinic.
