There are as many risks of falling into radical engagement as there unique adolescent stories. We have carried out a study of how youths and radicalness are represented in the general population. We analyze a therapeutic encounter with a young Franco-Algerian Moslem woman. Her narrative enables us to show the connections between her quest for identity and the socio-historical context as she sees it, which helps bring together the intra-psychical, the subjective and the collective.
