Institutional dynamics and groupal process : screenwriting and story-telling

Abstract: The author offers an afterthought on the meeting points between institutional therapy and therapeutic mediations. What are the common inspirations that lead these two points of view to defend a certain idea of caregiving institutions? What are the acquaintances and resemblance between these two ways for institutional caregiving? From the example of an institutional workshop as it is set up within the adolescent inpatient unit of the Villa des Pages Clinic, the author tries to articulate these two approaches of institutional psychological care.
