L'engagement du corps et son langage : quand la relaxation favorise la communication au sein d'un groupe de personnes atteintes de la maladie d'Alzheimer à un stade sévère

Abstract : "She is in her own world... She doesn't recognise me anymore... I can see that she wants to tell me something but I don't understand her... What is happening with her? Do you think that she realises what is happening around her? I can't communicate with her anymore..." These sentences are often heard coming from the close family and friends of Alzheimer's patients, who are at the most severe stage of the disease. Through my work, I attempt to emphasise Alzheimer's patients' communication capacities. By analysing their condition through their physical development, I try understanding how a psychomotor therapist can preserve or even regain certain aspects of verbal and infraverbal communication through the means of relaxation.
