The author presents a clinical example relevant to the ethno-therapeutic method applied to some adolescents in Chechnya.
The psychoanalysis of a severely ill 17 year-old adolescent boy illustrates some characteristics of the treatment after a developmental breakdown. I insist on the necessary (re)construction of the fantasies that were « blanked » by the traumatic enactments, as well as on the unavoidable psychotic transference.
