From one group to another : psychic capacities of a team and its slags in intitutional care

Abstract :


This exposé aims at suggesting a few arguments in favour of the therapeutic dimension of institutions and situating the part teamwork plays in such a dimension .Thinking collectively supports two types of distinct process . The former is about transforming the suffering that impacts the prevailing way of working of professionals . The latter comes close to the team script-writing about and dramatizing the very mental moves of the persons in care . A short clinical vignette throws light on the failure of such processes in case of institutional crisis.
