Claire Maurice : adolescence in the poor suburbs : a new “ malaise ” ?

Many young people from the poor suburbs are going through many problems, both familial and social, which raise the question of a new form of adolescent malaise in our contemporary society. These young people are not always open to therapeutic work.
