This article presents an original experience of utilising group narrative approach in the division of addiction medicine of University Hospitals of Geneva.

Après un rapide panorama de l’évolution des narrations collectives du début du siècle à nos jours sur la sexualité et la mise en lien avec les dysfonctions que favorisent ces narrations, nous montrerons à travers un éventail clinique issu d’une consultation d’addictologie que la sexualité qu’on pourrait imaginer être un espace de liberté s’avère êt...

Dans le prolongement du travail de Michael White avec des couples, nous presentons un usage clinique possible des concepts de « deconstruction » et de « differance » tels que les a construits Jacques Derrida. Des illustrations cliniques de couples concernes par les addictions serviront a la demonstration.

In a society which valorises autonomy, dialysis leads to dependency and therefore is associated with a very bad image. This loss of autonomy is one of the most common complains of dialyzed patients....

This allows the creation of new discussions leaving out the dead-end in which cannabis is the problem for the parents whereas it is the solution for the teenager. Two clinical situations illustrate th...

This intense conflictuality constitutes a psychic substance, the «toxicom», forming a kind of poison. Drug addiction could then take value of remedy while making the drug addict a toxic man.
