Description

This groundbreaking study focuses on the link between music-therapy and narrativity in a pediatric hematology-oncology unit. The goal is to observe and analyse the psychic processes in this therapeutic mediation. We aim to study the creative processes through the narrative productions of a sick and hospitalized teenagers. The interest of this original work with regard to previous research is to focus on the internal mechanisms of the patient and his narrative identity rather than on the active ingredient and the therapeutic method itself or its effect on a particular symptom. Based on a clinical situation of a young man of 19 years followed in onco-hematology, authors show how the creation of a sound link and subsequent narration on this sound object can be used as a "cordage" for seriously ill adolescents to endure the trauma of announcing the disease and announcing an imminent promise of death. We wish to support the issues of therapeutic support in order to demonstrate their resources with which they can subjectively assume their traumatic and painful journey, in this very specific space-time. His text, reproduced in appendix, is the subject of a literary analysis then of a psychopathological discussion. Copyright © 2019 Elsevier Masson SAS
