Sébastien Chapellon, Diane Salomon: the making of unplaceables

This article looks at failures that can occur in the multidisciplinary treatment of the subject. To protect themselves from the hard-to-tolerate affects that these subjects make them feel, professionals who are responsible for supporting them tend to reorient them towards others. This action, which is supposed to be therapeutic, increases the subject’s feeling of being abandoned and thus the violence of his or her attitudes. This will be illustrated by a clinical example.

Who’s out to get me? Technological humiliation

Man has dreamed of mastering his psychic, ecological and virtual environment, through a frantic race against any form of limit, whether of time, of space, of resources or of the body. The current situation undermines the narrative of man as center of the universe, as he is forced to acknowledge that he is peripheral in relation to what he presumed to dominate. Would the parental generation thus be paying tribute to adolescents for saving them from humiliation? How, then, can one inhabit one’s body and psyche, if the promised future is the end screen?

Marie Kaci: Tested by absence

This article presents the beginnings of the treatment of an adolescent who has experienced early trauma. The disconuity reestablished from the very start of treatment by repeated absences will bring the analyst face to face with the primary object relations. Constant disruption of, or even attacks on, the setting will have to be constructed around the patient’s psychic possibilities.

Stefano Monzani : Lost in transición

Si la adopción durante la adolescencia ocurre sin dificultades mayores, existen situaciones en que el choque entre los aspectos traumáticos vinculados al pasado del niño y su reactivación a la adolescencia y la vulnerabilidad de los padres impiden toda afiliación, todo injerto. El autor ha llamado estas situaciones de gran sufrimiento individual y familiar estados de supervivencia en referencia a los escritos de J. Altounian.

Alexandre Beine: From abandonment to adoption

abandonment, the necessary prelude to adoption, is here conceived of as the first step that enables filiation. The adoptive child must himself abandon his birth parents in order to adopt his new parents. This reappropriation of abandonment is made inevitable by the subjectivation of adolescence. It requires that one get past the real trauma of rejection in order to inscribe it as the structuring trauma of the loss and the gift. It affects every subject when he or she re-establishes filiation in adolescence.

Stefano Monzani: Lost in transition

Though adoption in adolescence often happens without serious problems, there are nevertheless situations where the collusion between traumatic aspects linked to the child’s past and its reactivation in adolescence, and the vulnerability of the parents, prevent any affiliation or grafting. The author has called these situations of great individual and familial distress “survival states” in reference to the writings of J. Altounian.

Stefano Monzani : Lost in transition

Si l’adoption à l’adolescence se passe souvent sans de graves écueils, il existe néanmoins des situations où la collusion entre les aspects traumatiques liés au passé de l’enfant et sa réactivation à l’adolescence, et la vulnérabilité des parents, empêchent toute affiliation, toute greffe. L’auteur a appelé ces situations de grande détresse individuelle et familiale, états de survivance, en référence aux écrits de J. Altounian.

Vincenzo Bonaminio: the case of bernard

This article presents a clinical treatment that develops from childhood, through adolescence, to young adulthood, from three different perspectives: diagnosis, psychoanalytical psychotherapy and supervision. Are we dealing with a family traumatic pathology, childhood psychosis evolving into an adolescent borderline state, a problem of subjectivation? Interpretive technique will be studied in detail in relation to transference modes.

Sylvie Le Poulichet: from trauma to passion: when the body is called into question

For adolescents whose lives are marked by many traumas starting at birth, it may happen that the onset of Passion – analogous to the suffering of Christ before and during his crucifixion – provides a solution. Using the clinical case of an anorexic adolescent girl, this paper will show how the body calls itself into question before the other, re-opening the fundamental question of desire.
