À fleur de peau : accompagnement psychomoteur de la déficience intellectuelle en milieu aquatique

Abstract : Intellectual disability complicates the establishment of spatio-temporal and corporal references allowing basic internal security. This disrupts self consciousness and thus the possibilities of entering into relationships with others. This research explains my meeting with Cyril, a young man with an intellectual disability, whom I accompanied for a few months as part of a leisure pool group. It proposes an attempt to understand Cyril's psycho-corporal experience in order to favour and think this helping relationship throughout a psychomotor approach. This reflection thinks water as a mediation and presents this work as a support of the references weaken by the intellectual deficiency. It is through a spatio-temporal and sensory support as a first support that a corporal and relational exploration can then be approached. The feeling of being oneself and the possibility of interrelation lead this reflection, which goes through the problems of body’s limits, the establishment of in/out and sensory overflow.
