De l'intérêt du double au psychodrame

(On the Interest of the Double in Psychodrama)

Claude Broclain

Drawing on the double interpreted by an actor, in the area of play that is the psychodramatic scene, the patient will be able to attribute to himself a part of himself that he has not yet assimilated, or reappropriate it if it has been projected outside. He will thus have the possibility of gaining access to his inner conflictuality and identifications. This supposes that the co-therapist actor has the capacity to let himself regress to his infantile self and is also capable of momentary plasticity, thereby permitting a work of transformation and figurability comparable to the dream work enabling him to gain access to elements that were hitherto unrepresentable for the patient. Two clinical vignettes illustrate the interest of employing this technique in psychodrama.
