VALLEJO ORELLANA, Reyes. Helene Deutsch, a pioneer in the approach woman’s Psycho(patho)logie from psychoanalytic perspective. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2002, n.83, pp.93-107. ISSN 2340-2733.

Helene Deutsch was a pioneer in the approach to wards woman's psycho(patho)logy from a psychoanalytic perspective., Although her theory continued with some limitations in part because of her fidelity to Sigmund Freud and in part by her neurotic problems. In any case she attracted attention about the influence of cultural factors on the establishment of the sex-gender system and some specific disorders related to woman going beyond the freudian phalluscentric thesis. Inspite of that, some feminists of her time considered her to be a traitor of the feminine cause.

Keywords : Helene Deutsch; woman-psychology; sex-gender; psychoanalysis; feminism.
