Étude qualitative sur l’expérience subjective des soignants réalisant les entretiens d’accueil au sein de maisons des adolescents

Abstract : Adolescent care centers, or “Maisons d’adolescents” (“MDAs”), are designed to welcome, assist, guide and treat teenagers in difficulty. The first step in this process consists of initial interviews and evaluations conducted by health care professionals and social workers. Because of the diversity and complexity of cases encountered, the MDA health care professionals must possess a variety of relational skills and competencies to properly conduct these interviews. The purpose of this study is to analyze the subjective experience of MDA health care professionals and social workers doing initial interviews in order to identify these relational skills and competencies. The study involves semi-structured interviews of MDA professionals in three different MDAs. The results show the importance for the adolescent to objectify his experience in his own words and from his own perspective. This process occurs through the intervention of the subjectivity of the professional and a shared experience between the adolescent and the caregiver which enable the latter to guide the adolescent through his feelings. The bond and the working alliance thus formed is an essential step towards further investment of the adolescent with other professionals and services and the development of help-seeking behavior. We have discussed the importance of inter-subjectivity and mirrored experiencing in the building of representations and symbolization as well as the importance of ways of supporting professionals experiencing shared emotions with their patients. These results would benefit from complementary studies analyzing the experience of families and adolescent.
