La psychiatrie de l enfant (PSYCHIAT ENFANT )

Description

Depuis sa fondation en 1958, par J. de Ajuriaguerra, R. Diatkine, S. Lebovici et R. Crémieux, La Psychiatrie de l'Enfant publie deux fois l'an un ensemble de textes sur la psychopathologie et la thérapeutique en psychiatrie de l'enfant et de l'adolescent. Créée par des psychanalystes, La Psychiatrie de l'Enfant tient son originalité tant de son orientation décidément psychanalytique que de son intérêt pour toutes les connaissances sur l'enfant apportées par les spécialistes de disciplines aussi diverses que la neuropsychologie, la biologie, la génétique, la sociologie ou la pédagogie. Pluridisciplinaire par son contenu, internationale par le choix des auteurs, La Psychiatrie de l'Enfant se veut le carrefour des multiples explorations du psychisme de l'enfant et de l'adolescent. Dans ces volumes, les rubriques Mémoires cliniques, Méthodologie et technique, Psychiatrie sociale et problèmes d'assistance groupent des travaux originaux. Leurs auteurs appartiennent à des disciplines différentes (psychiatrie, psychanalyse, psychologie, sociologie, histoire...) et à diverses écoles de pensée. Les articles sont suffisamment longs pour permettre aux auteurs d'exposer largement leurs idées personnelles, les résultats de leurs travaux et le matériel clinique qu'ils ont utilisé. L'ensemble des travaux, souvent d'inspiration psychanalytique, ainsi que les revues critiques des problèmes d'actualité fournissent aux lecteurs une image fidèle des tendances actuelles de la psychiatrie infantile.

    ABSTRACT: Cet article présente un dispositif psychothérapeutique mis en place à la maternité Jean Verdier à Bondy : une consultation transculturelle qui accueille des femmes de différentes origines culturelles, ayant en commun d’être touchées par des problématiques migratoires. Nous présentons en détail le dispositif puis présentons deux cas cliniques illustrant l’intérêt et la spécificité d’une telle consultation en maternité.

    ABSTRACT: De nombreuses études américaines ont souligné récemment l'importance des traumatismes de la petite enfance, notamment des abus sexuels, dans la genèse des pathologies limites ; en en faisant souvent le facteur étiologique principal. Certaines de ces études sont allées jusqu'à dresser un parallè e entre le développement des états de stress posttraumatiques et celui des troubles limites de la personnalité. Bien que l'on ne puisse négliger le rôle de ces facteurs majeurs de stress, il semble difficile de limiter l'étiologie de ces troubles à de telles relations de cause a effet, sans tenir compte d'éléments, en apparence, moins bruyants comme les distorsions ans les interactions précoces mère-enfant. L'hypothèse émise par d'autres auteurs est celle de l'intervention d'une atteinte de ces interactions dans l'étiopathogénie de ces troubles, à l'origine - entre autres choses - d'un défaut de contenance et de la fonction pare-excitante. Ceci expliquerait la vulnérabilité accrue à tout facteur de stress et, principalement, la difficulté à élaborer et à dépasser les expériences d'effroi, que sont les événements décrits plus hauts. La survenue d'abus sexuels dans l'enfance est certes fréquente dans ces pathologies, comme dans d'autres... Mais l'existence e dissonances dans les premiers contacts entre le nouveau-né et son entourage l'est peut-être tout autant. Les traumatismes psychiques plus tardifs viendraient déstructurer une personnalité jusqu'alors adaptée en surface.

    ABSTRACT: This work tempts to emphasize the relation between the quality of the reception of the young child and the shared observation work done by the team. It also tries to define the psychologist's contribution.

    ABSTRACT: Clinicians and parents are familiar with the fact that adolescents have a special vocabulary, but very few studies have examined this. Linguists describe it as deeply metaphoric, creative and lively, thus showing that young people have a deep knowledge of language and truly experience pleasure using words. This contrasts with teachers' complaints about the little taste adolescents show for oral school activities and how poorly they express themselves. Some of them link this to the use of this polysemic and all purpose vocabulary. The context of locution is probably the explanation for these diverging opinions. Using this hypothesis, we have realised a quantitative study of the lexical variations depending on the person the adolescent is talking to in two groups (20 and 19 subjects), from very different social and educational backgrounds. Each teen-ager had to perform the same linguistic task: the description of a photograph on two occasions, once with an adult examiner and once with a friend. We studied the lexical differences between the two narratives. When adolescents are together they use their particular vocabulary four times more than when with an adult. But this qualitative difference is not a quantitative one, such as the length of the narrative or the number and repetition of whole words, and isn't correlated with the lexical stock. The use of this vocabulary runs across gender and social class categories. It can equally be found in high performance and upper class students as well as in underprivileged youngsters of technical schooling. It is the only variable that does not change between the two high schools. Thus this special vocabulary would not be connected to the subject's lexical competence, nor to gender or social background. It is the psychological function of this language that seems to be prominent.

    ABSTRACT: Starting from The Freud-Klein Controversies, the author explores the historical reality of these controversies and their transformations into myth which give them the appearance of titanic fights. The verification of the different periods, the description of the variations in themes and style of intervention of the principal actors of these debates show aspects of the way a psychoanalytic institute works and of the theoretical elaboration in psychoanalysis: these appear very different from what the myth suggests. The major function of myth is, as Freud noted and Strachey reminds us, to hide very trite, even shameful realities. History and myth, theoritical effort and institutional life are all organized from and around transference, a major axis of psychoanalytic thought. When we organize our psychoanalytic lives in societies, we have the pride or the vanity of participating in a great historical movement. This goes back to the work of transference in institutional life that involves primal objects in the crudeness of their sexuality. Such is the constraining strength of transference. Being fully conscious of it, like Stratchey or Balint show us, enables to alleviate its violence and stimulate creativity.

    ABSTRACT: Authors propose a review of the international literature on infantile anorexia nervosa. They show that a nasographical consensus is far from being reached although this trouble occurs very frequently. They suggest classification axes which should be considered before research criteria that be used in a unified nosology.

    ABSTRACT: Merycism has always intrigued clinicians. A review of the recent literature reminds us of its characteristics. The auto-stimulation dimension appears important, whatever the underlying psychopathology of mericysm. The frequence of mericysm during early childhood seems to have considerably diminished, even almost disappeared. We will discuss the reasons why mericysm continues to exist in the anorexic and boulmic young adult. We will analyze the relationship of mericysm in early childhood to depression and to growth delay. The dimension of ascendency seems to help us understand this problem.

    ABSTRACT: The author tries, in is own, name to translate the French position on early child autism. This position can be expressed through a few acceptable points for the majority of French professionals, obviously without any idea of a consensus. The concept of a plurifactorial determinism and the psychopathological view of the disorder which is not thought of in France as susceptible to be reduced to a handicap of a primarily cognitive nature are therefore underlined. Thus the importance of a unified multidimensional therapeutic approach that considers the different consequences of the illness without forgetting its fundamentally interactive nature ("autistic-making process"). Today, the psychoanalytic approach tends to concentrate on the analysis of secondary factors of upholding and on the significance given in the after-thought by the autistic disorders within the family group. This opens the way to a collaboration between specialists of the different disciplines that are involved, including those who work in the field of neuroscience.

    ABSTRACT: Surprisingly little has been written on the impact of the death of a baby on an older sibling. This paper describes how a narcissistically vulnerable latency boy grappled, in the course of his psychotherapy, with the painful loss of his baby brother. Emotional and cognitive aspects of his early confrontation with the reality of death are considered. The patient's six theories about the cot death are described. Attention is drawn to the value of the sibling relationship and to the narcissistic needs which this relationship fulfilled. The termination phase is discussed in the light of the dynamics of sudden loss. The safe therapeutic context provided the space in which this young, rather muddled latency boy could grieve and mourn this traumatic loss.

    ABSTRACT: Study of 133 children and adolescents hospitalized and operated in child and adolescent reconstructive surgery. We will study the fantasy representations of anxiety as it is expressed by this population, as well as the psychological repercussions of surgical interventions: behavior disorders, depression, anxiety. We will show that pre-adolescents and adolescents represent the most vulnerable patients in regard to the anxiety triggered by the surgical act and that some of them experience, at the time of the operation, episodes of psychic disorganization of psychotic appearance. We will look into the impact of this mutilating surgery and the weight of severe orthopedic handicaps, and have noted that the expression of anxiety isn't always in relation to the seriousness of the handicap and/or that of the intervention. The anxiety is linked to the psychological balance of the child which is largely due to the relationship he has with his parents and the feeling of self-esteem that the child has if he is accepted as he is. The surgeon seems to us like an important element in the dynamic of the way anxiety is dealt with since the patient and his parents establish a truly transferential bond to him that is of great intensity. The number of school problems, relational and behavioral difficulties and depressive reactions noted in this population shows that reconstructive surgery is very disorganizing for the personality and acts as a psychological trauma.
