Philippe Givre : psychical consequences induced by the “mother-effect”

The conceptual developments contributed by D. Guyomard in her work “L’effet-mère”(The Mother-Effect) enrich very much notions that have been explicitly set forth concerning the processses of adolescence. Thus, the pubertary archaic will reveal and explore the quality of the “narcissism of the link”: the initial link of the mother-daughter relation, and the conditions leading to the construction of the mother-object and its loss. This paper will envision the risk of a melancholisation of the link to the object and the repercussions for the identificatory processes, especially for the transition of the feminine between mother and daughter.
