Danièle PIERRE : The one and only or the hesitation of a young (ethno)psychatrist

Available on http://www.ethnopsychiatrie.net/actu/abstr1.htm#_Toc472447993

This article recounts the therapy of a young Moroccan man, suffering from a schizo-paranoid type of pathology, treated by the author, a Belgian psychiatrist. The author dwells more specifically on the use of cultural knowledge in the interpretation of the young patients dreams. She deliberately analyzes her own countertransference, namely in the difficulty she experienced in attributing true value to cultural interpretations such as possession by a jinn. In the process, she questions her own references stemming from traditional psychiatry.
