Jérôme Boutinaud, Philippe Chabert: the double in psychodrama and borderline adolescent

Individual psychoanalytical psychodrama with adolescents who present with borderline personality issues shows the fundamental role of the technique of the double. This mode of intervention helps the patient accept the setting and is suitable for cases involving acting out, the dominance of experiencing over thinking, and multiple types of anxiety. Play shared with a co-therapist embodying the double eventually helps to define a safer psychic and corporal space.

Roland Gori : the art of sweet servitude

The author, following Michel Foucault, describes how the art of governing presupposes the interests of the State are more and more imposed on the populace in the management of existences and private matters. To do this, Power sets up security systems by manipulating public opinion and making a tool of the sciences. “Experts” become the scribes of these new market economy servitudes, which gently and insidiously standardize individuals and populations. Medicine, psychiatry and psychology are, in this article, considered as social practices and the author shows that the re-composition of their knowledge and practices has more to do with an ideological position than with a scientific one.
