Alain Braconnier: when the therapist is troubled

The adolescent can trouble the therapist just as he can trouble can anyone else who cares for him, from the parents to institutions. The specific nature of analytical listening explores what we call the intrapsychic “troubling object” that it refers to. This troubling object needs to be located and interpreted not only in the inner world of the adolescent and but also in that of the therapist.
