Manon Ruelle, Sébastien Urben, Thierry Gerardi, Isabelle Bourgeois Genoud, Bernard Volz, Carole Kapp, Francesca Di Giacomo: hospital treatment of cloistered young adults

Through a clinical vignette, we will illustrate how hospitalization in a pediatric-psychiatric unit plays a part in the treatment of young people who have withdrawn from social life. Immersion in the institutional setting, participation in individual and family interviews, group activities, and networking helps remobilize objectal investments and restart the process of differentiation and subjectivation.
