Adolescence et risque psychotique. Trouée événementielle et temporalité

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    The notion of "trouée événementielle" allows us to think about the link between adolescence and psychotic risk. Adolescence is a particular event. It is a breaking in from outside. Elements buried in the subject's story resurface or recur to the mind. And this process induces a modification of the subjective position towards what is happening. The inside and the outside invert. The temporal thread of meanings is teared. Eléments come untied. This moment is utterly dizzy and leads to the restablishment of a new reality. The psychotic peril appears as the perspective of giving way to this dizzyness, with the inability to rearticulate a proper rhythm. Based on Henri Maldiney's phenomenology, supporting a particular point of the lacanian psychanalysis and the poet's experience, particularly Andre du Bouchet, this article tries to specify the risks of this eventfull moment and to derive implications for a specific clinic of the event
