Diana Maatouk, Louis Brunet: hate in an adolescent war amputee

Four semi-directive clinical interviews and a projective test have been carried out with an adolescent boy who is a war amputee. This research, carried out through psychoanalysis, helped to show the dehumanizing experience of this youth. Surviving by hate is the best solution that he could find to fight off the threat of breakdown of his intrapsychic balance, which nevertheless remains precarious.
