The assessment of psychological damage in victims of violence is a complex process that requires not only identification of symptoms, but the understanding of them, although, for lawyers only psychological harm can be regarded as pathological diagnostic entities, some authors of theories conceive of the psyche than any kind of affection that can be categorized as "negative", which is the result of a traumatic event can be regarded as psychological harm. In these processes of assessment, psychoanalysis is to position itself as a theory that provides a clear understanding of the unconscious aspects that influence the generation of symptoms by traumatic events, away from any pragmatic approach, allowing understanding everything that lies beyond consciousness.
