Avoir un corps, être un corps : la corporéité à l’épreuve de la schizophrénie

Abstract : Schizophrenia is a chronic, severe and disabling mental illness that affects 600,000 people in France. It is a complex pathology with numerous repercussions on personal, social, professional and family levels. The physicality and the image of the body are affected, wiich is then expressed through archaic anxieties, a specific bodily experience and sometimes failing body envelopes. We also notice the presence of iatrogenic or disease-specific psychomotor disorders. Psychomotricity allows the patient suffering from schizophrenia to live non delirious bodily experiences in a containing and reassuring framework. Thanks to his corporal involvement in the therapy, the psychomotrician occupies a full place in these patients’ care. The mediation around the medium of clay that I proposed allows to refocus on materiality and embodiment. The patients model the clay using their body, which comes to life and becomes unified. The patient experiences this and it leaves a mark.
