About the Webinar

This work is about psychotherapeutic process of a child and his family and it will be a clinical case. The Author will present her work to start a discussion reflecting on psychotherapy, research and therapeutic processes. The child is six years old and still poo in his diapers. He was the first child and his mother had a serious baby blues (postpartum depression). When the second child (another boy who is 2 years old) was born, the baby blues was expected and well treated. However, the first child went to sleep in a parents' room and the childs' room was occupied by the second baby because he needed to sleep well. The contribution of this talk is about psychodrama's methodology: the family group and psychotherapist created many songs at the supply reality, when they played together a set of rules, card game, called “can –can”. Sometimes it happened among mother, child and psychotherapist, sometimes, with father, child and psychotherapist and other time among everyone. We could observe the meaning of the symptom, intrapsychic and interpsychic,: the child needs everything under control: what is need to be controlled? On the intrapsychic point of view, the abandonment ; on the interpsychic point of view, the parents ́ authority. We think the creativity of therapist is very important of the psychotherapeutic process and never the less the knowledge of development of a child and theory and methodology of Psychodrama, on the systemic vision.
