Liuba Rakova-Carron: adolescence: how to live it and be done with it, or how to start it?

Using two brief clinical vignettes showing two young adults – one who never presented any troubling signs in childhood, the other treated for psychotic symptoms – the author will look retroactively at the twists and turns of the adolescent process and the role that this psychic experience may or may not have played in the evolution of their lives. Is it possible that this psychic experience of adolescence is not accessible to everyone?
