Thérapie familiale de l’adolescent suicidant, perspectives théoriques et cliniques : à partir de 2 thérapies

Abstract : Suicidality in adolescence (suicidal ideation, suicide attempts, effective suicides) is a major public health issue in France, whose management is essential for the prevention of recidivism. In more than half of the cases, conflicts in family relationships are reported, which gives rise to the intuition of including the family in care. This hypothesis seems to be confirmed through the results of a review of the literature on the different methods of family care. In addition, the different theoretical concepts and tools used in systemic family therapy provide interesting insights into the functionning of the adolescent family. The qualitative study carried out in this work on the completeness of the therapeutic processes of the families of two teenagers having had suicidal behaviors proposes to bring a clinical illustration of it. Putting the theoretical and clincial aspects into perspective makes it possible to go from an individual diagnosis of suicidal behavior to that of a dysfunction shared by the entire family system. The therapeutic processes illustrate the possibility of change of the family in the service of the symptomatic improvment of their adolescents. Thus, in addition to individual management, systemic family therapy seems to be an interesting and effective therapeutic lever, as well as a possible alternative to psychotropic treatments in the management of suicidality in adolescence.
