Abstract

Psychology as a science understood subjectivity, essentially and simultaneously, as an individual process that determines all other processes and also merely social, being the man determined by it. Subjectivity is historically produced and not a direct result of the processes we live in the spaces we share. The purpose of this article is to explain couple psychotherapy as a favorable scenario for understanding the individual and social subjective processes, implicated in conjugality. These aspects are evidenced in accordance with the Theory of Subjectivity in a historical and cultural. And Qualitative Epistemology, on which constructive-interpretive research is supported, guiding the methodological processes of this research. Held in a private practice with a couple, whose tools used are dialogue and complement of phrases. It was found that the subjective development processes presented in the marital relationship are organized in complex and contradictory subjective configurations. The subjective meanings arising from the individual and social system, referring to the singular life stories and the characteristics of Brazilian social subjectivity, cross, mutually, through the uniqueness of each person and are expressed by the dialogic character of the psychotherapeutic space.
