Olivier Moyano: the psychosomatic dynamic of the passage to the act in the delinquent adolescent

The polysemy of adolescent actings is rich and varied. To shed light on the unique clinical area of the adolescent act, I think it is useful to look at the contributions of the psychosomatic, particularly at the harmful effects of the loss of a rich inner dynamic in favor of or as a counterpoint to an explosion of externalized conducts. We will end by offering some ideas about the paradox of disruptiveness in the context of adolescent essential depression, where impulsiveness co-exists with wandering.
