Preventive perinatal home visits are a powerful and effective tool, particularly to reach the most vulnerable families. These families, who accumulate multiple psycho-social difficulties, seldom use available medical and social institutions and find themselves at greater risk of developing disorders in early parent-child relationship and a subsequent psychopathology. This paper is based on a literature review of home-visiting programs, in France and other countries. Our purpose is both to describe better this practice, which hasn't yet been clearly formalized within institutions, and also to assess its impact and limitations. © Médecine & Hygiène.

Having considered the concepts of intergenerational and transgenerational psychic transmission with regard to the theory of deferred action, the author refers to the available models of transmission processes (according, in succession, to the works of Bion, Bowlby and Stern) before concluding by presenting the system of early interactions between the baby and its caregivers as a narrative space with a double meaning that specifically contributes to constructing the child's identity. © P.U.F.

Pervasive developmental disorders (PDD-ICD10), covering roughly the same entity as the autism spectrum disorders (ASD DSM-IVTR and DSM-V) include a heterogeneous clinical reality. PDD develop in childhood and are characterized by alterations In socialization, communication and behavior disorders with stereotypies and repetitive movements. Autism is included in PDD and has led to many debates in France and to the publication of recommendations and government plans, in recent years. We propose in this article to review the current knowledge of this topic. Source

Among the various forms of violence inflicted on a child, psychological violence holds a significant place in terms of frequency, diversity and damage done, as serious and pervasive consequences can be observed on the child's development. This article highlights and assesses the psychological consequences provoked by psychological violences perpetrated by parents, teachers or other children in different situations, such as domestic violence, divorce and school bullying. It also gives some indications for intervention and prevention in those situations. © 2014 Elsevier Masson SAS. Source

This article describes several months of the treatment of a three-year-old boy, Jonathan, presenting pervasive developmental disorder. This experience using psychomotor therapy reveals his difficulties from a psycho-dynamic viewpoint. These troubles are centered on the body image and corporal anxieties. Two of Jonathan's most frequent object manipulations illustrate this clinical experience: those with baloons and felt pens. The text also bears witness to the therapeutic process whose aim is to accompany and support Jonathan in the restructuration of his body ego. Psychomotor therapy is based on the verbalisation of the child's manipulations. The recognition of our own feelings during this experience is at the heart of the therapeutic process. The goal is to lead the child toward a consciousness of himself and of the Other in a relationship which is secure and differentiated. Source
