Samir Fellak : Identity’s dueling scars

In the adolescent, an absence or porosity of links with infantile objects causes a crack in the potential for identification and plunges him/her into an unbearable and unsettling feeling that the Ego is uncanny. The psychotherapeutic setting enables the patient to express his hatred towards the mother or the father, within a transference onto the psychoanalyst that makes it possible to encounter another, identified as “stranger,” who is sufficiently different (sexually) and differentiated (narcissistically).

Alain Braconnier: A crisis of transmission?

The author explores the links between crisis of transmission, crisis of transgenerational identifications, and crisis of identity, and the effects these have on adolescents’ identity construction. In our clinical practice, are we not confronted with the conflicts of these three domains and are we not, in the transference (and counter transference) potential supports for the three modes of object relations with the adolescents and families we encounter?

Samir Fellak : Les balafres identitaires

L’absence ou la porosité des liens aux objets de l’enfance fissure, chez l’adolescent, la potentialité identificatoire et plonge celui-ci dans un insoutenable et inquiétant sentiment d’étrangeté du Moi. Le dispositif psychothérapique permet au patient d’exprimer sa haine à l’endroit de la mère ou du père, dans une relation de transfert sur le psychanalyste donnant une possibilité de rencontre à un autre, identifié comme « étranger », suffisamment différent (sexuellement) et différencié (narcissiquement).

Alain Braconnier : Crise de la transmission ?

L’auteur interroge les liens entre crise de la transmission, crise des identifications transgénérationnelles et crise d’identité, et leurs effets sur la construction identitaire des adolescents. Dans notre pratique, ne serions-nous pas confrontés à la conflictualité de ces trois domaines et nous-mêmes les supports transférentiels (et contre-transférentiels) potentiels de trois modes de relation d’objets avec les adolescents et les familles que nous rencontrons.

Guy Dana, Anne Tassel : An Unconstituted Clinical Practice

At a time of technological changes, the contemporary adolescent fashions new modes of intersubjective organization (sms, chat, mail, networks, etc.) by producing multiple figures of his new reference points. The author invites the reader to follow the chaotic movement of this evolution, piecemeal, as suggested by this fragmentary mode that runs counter to the abecedary.

annie birraux: the vicissitudes of heroic identification

The author investigates the outcome of identification work in the training of elite athletes, particularly in disciplines where the desired goal is to become a monetized object. This article situates the issue within a fetishistic economic context where the appropriation of the psychical body is still a great feat.

Annie Birraux : les vicissitudes de l’identification héroïque

L’auteur s’interroge sur le devenir du travail identificatoire dans la formation des sportifs de haut niveau et en particulier dans les disciplines où le but à atteindre est de devenir un objet monnayable. Article qui inscrit ce problème dans un contexte économique fétichiste où l’appropriation du corps psychique demeure un exploit.

Catherine Desprats-Péquignot : d’un trou dans la gorge aux organes imaginaires du sexe

L’équivalence classique sexe/visage, la parole associative d’un sujet dans la relation d’interlocution en favorise parfois la survenue, permettant d’appréhender cliniquement des correspondances substitutives entre « bas » et « haut » mais aussi ce qui par là vient se dire pour un sujet, qui lui est propre, et qu’il méconnaît. Ainsi le cas d’Anaïs invite à considérer les correspondances gorge/regard/œil/sexe féminin condensées dans l’image générique du « trou » à laquelle l’événement vécu d’une trachéotomie offre un support propice à l’expression de sa réalité psychique et de ses positions subjectives.

CORTHAY-CASOT L., HALFON O. : VIOLENCE IN THE CONTEXT OF ADOLESCENCE 

The authors suggest to ponder on the topic of a rise of acted violence in the adolescent population and question the psychoanalytic understanding of destructive both heteroaggressive and self‑aggressive movements. Several theoretical positions on the topic of the death instinct, or of drive unbinding or an attempt to save a feeling of identity when violence surges are analyzed briefly, followed by two clinical vignettes. From the latter cases, they try to link the intrapsychological and family links underlying the recourse to violent actings with such subjects, as related with adolescent problematics. The temporary identification dilemma is here suggested as well as the interdependence between self‑violence and violence towards the other person.

LIPPE D. : Juliette of the quest for a bladly indentified object 

Developing at long lenght the case of a young bulimic patient around mutative periods of the transference relationship and of the fruitful drawbacks of a lateral transference within the cure, I try to stress the particular and specific characteristics of her objet relation. I suggest that one should interpret the addiction to food as being the problematics of flaws in archaïc identitification processes linked to the fact that the primary cathexis were “ to identify badly ” or were “ badly identified ”. The object could thus not be intrejected but only incorporated. Hence an endless quest (addiction) not so much of the object itself but, rather, an attempt to identify “ that very ” object in order to identify oneself to it and thus be able to avoid being alienated by it.
