Michel Vincent : hate and trauma at the onset of adolescence

After having briefly evoked Freudian theories of hate and the three positions that I have suggested for study in adolescents, a clinical observation will allow us to gauge the impact of pubertary transformations stemming from childhood experiences in patients afflicted with grave somatic illnesses. These pathologies are not the expression of specific psychic conflicts; such traumatic disorders mobilize the resources of mental functioning in order to confront them better.
