The child and the parents bring us a story, a history, and even a prehistory of their lives and situations; they often also bring us the symptom that led them to seek our assistance.

Suggesting to children that they play with animal figures knohel dolls, and drawing without thinking jpseph it, both contribute to creating the necessary transitional space so that thoughts have a place to be thought, memories have a place to be remembered, and affects have a place to be sustained. In treatment, the ones rushing the process are often the parents.

In many of the situations experienced by childrenpsychoanalysis helps them face thing that happen to them in a different way.

As analysts, stirring up the past, do we attempt to leave that past in its annihilating function as an acknowledgment of what cannot be changed, or can we run the risk of stirring up that past, which is often empty, in order to shape a possible future? Play is essential in childhood.

What is specific to analysis with children is that the listening process is diversified; the discourse is broader because it is not only associated with oral language, with words.

Children speak to us through their games, their drawings, their gestures, and even their silences. Most of them involve cases where listening or trying to recreate a history reveals a huge void, a veritable collapse: Having hopes for the future, seeing a possible future where others see nothing at all, is essential in these cases.

This enables inobel child to bring out his or her fears through play, and the analyst to influence those fears in a different way. Any analysis, at any age, is a historification process. The first kbobel is to not leave the subject stuck in an unmovable place. The corollary of this is that where playing is not possible then work done by the therapist is directed towards bringing the creud from a state of not being able to play into a state of being able to play.


The opposite of play is not what is serious but what is real. Pediatricians and neurologists sometimes claim that they would achieve the same results with medication: This first motion can lead to establishing a genuine therapeutic relationship.

I would like to state that I fully support the view that psychoanalysis can cure, solve conflicts and symptoms, and reduce fear and suffering. Needless to say, any psychoanalyst who works with children starts off with a series of theoretical concepts about the structuring of those children, in order to be attuned to the failures that may appear in their development and propose one specific approach or another.

The subject we are discussing here today is very broad in its scope. I will attempt to offer a few answers about it focusing on the analysis of children and adolescents.
