Example text

My patient’s worry about her daughter’s departure raises a question about her capacity to separate from someone she loves and to continue her life by re-cathecting her energy in relationships and activities; she seems helpless. I begin to construct silently the hypothesis of a psychic fragility in the early period of Marie-Laure’s life, but I do not have enough elements yet. In introducing my psychosomatician’s role, I had indicated to MarieLaure that my work involves establishing the connections between current and past life events and the problems from which she is suffering; this statement enables me to address every aspect of life, with the patient’s consent.

I am going to take more inspiration from the example of American working practices that, in some respects, are very different from our own, and in others very similar.

The French culture I learnt at school and university constitutes the intellectual component of my personality, to which I must add the INTRODUCTION xxxvii Judaeo–Arab and Judaeo–Berber cultures that are its foundations. The latter two have determined my value system, emotions, and behaviour; during my law studies, I supplemented my knowledge of Islam by specialising in Islamic law.
