Master Thesis

Intérêt d’ateliers de lecture pour les comportements de communication de patients en état de conscience minimale

Abstract : Objective:
A person in a minimally conscious state (MCS) shows limited interactional manifestations. To communicate with her, it is necessary to offer singular stimulation frameworks. Can communication behaviors be promoted through reading workshops for patients MCS ?
The communication behaviors of eight patients MCS, divided into two equal groups, were observed during six weekly reading workshops, each including three sequences. Observations data were collected on a grid developed for this study.
Qualitative and quantitative analyzes show changing and increasing communication behaviors for every patient and for all workshops. These changes, mostly visual, ranged from inconspicuous to fairly numerous depending on the patient. The observation grid did not make it possible to determine if one sequence was more stimulating than another.
Our study suggests that reading workshops can be beneficial for the communication behaviors of MCS patients. These workshops offered moments of collective listening and sharing. The proposed stimulation is beneficial and would benefit from being reproduced in future studies
