Double regard dans le processus de réflexion : la psychomotricité à la rencontre de l’identité du patient en soins palliatifs

Abstract : This joint thesis results from the collaboration of two people, each with her own distinct identity and point of view. We focused on the ways in which psychomotor therapy can support the sense of identity in end-of-life care, investigating how intersubjectivity scaffolds the subjectivity of patients in palliative care. The only stable feature of identity is its ever-changing nature. Since it focuses on the body, movement, and thinking, psychomotor therapy is inherently multidisciplinary, and therefore involves a variety of relevant remediation techniques to support the sense of self of dying patients. Therapeutic touch, active or passive movements, sensory perception, and respiration can foster a psychological transformation, enrich embodied experience, and encourage being in touch with one’s emotions. These therapeutic tools can be used in co-construction with the patient to repair their connection to self, others, and their environment. Thus, the psychomotor therapist observes and questions the concepts of real, perceived, and imaginary body so that the patient can be a fully agentive, desiring, and thinking subject.
