Composer avec le stress à l'adolescence : impact d'une forme scolaire de pratique du « feldenkrais® »

Abstract : This research points two aims : to propose a school form of practicing "Feldenkrais®" and to locate the effects of the activity "Feldenkrais® " on stress and coping after a training program for pupils in a class of Troisième. Our work scans several theorical areas in order to follow a multidisciplinary method. Research methodology is based on a mixte approach : qualitative, because the "Feldenkrais®" propose a betterness process, and, quantitative. Data collected come from five types of sources : a documentary analysis, a quasi-experimentation, questionnaires, semi-directed interviews, grownd observations. Quasi-experimentation takes place with students from a Third class of a secondary school. (n=20). A control group (n=10) and an experimental group (n=10) are the population. Experimental group is trained during 5 weeks. Our results indicate that the stress level decreases after "Feldenkrais®" training. But results are nuanced about body image and strategies of coping : some of our results confirm our hypothetis and others refute them. Main contributions of this research are : a better knowledge of the "Feldenkrais®", of the somatic education ; a better knowledge of health education ; a didactic innovatory proposal: teaching a body awareness method in scholar context ; a new tool to cope with stress, for the adolescents. This work opens paths to self-health, transdisciplinarity, and well-being bodily techniques in schools, body ecology.
