Alexandre Morel: scenes of violence

Using a clinical account of the treatment through psychodrama of an adolescent girl hospitalized for anorexia, the author will discuss different aspects of the way violence is summoned up against the one bearing the anorexic symptom. There is the violence of plunging into a treatment framework that compels the patient into renewed interaction with the object, and the healthy violence of the child within the adolescent who supports the turning around of hatred from auto-aggression to other-directed aggression.
