L’usage de la poésie haïku en psycho-oncologie

Abstract : Abstract Aim: Our study aims to describe the discourse effects of specific and structured protocol focused on several haiku poems about one patient, who have experienced cancer. Procedure: The protocol consists of 4 steps: a preliminary exploratory interview, fifteen haiku proposed without a part of the poem (a creative writing filled in by the patient), a free form haiku composed by the patient, and finally, a final interview. Clinical case: A man, D., aged 25, had tumor. Result: Using this protocol, we showed discourse variations on the illness before and after the experience of poetry writing, by Tropes V8.4 software. Conclusion: Haiku poetry can be a useful tool in the context of supportive interventions or as preparatory work for engagement in psychotherapeutic intervention. We believe that the formal structure of haikus can create conditions for a specific poetic work composed of: poetic evocation, synthesis, and mapping of the most intimate experiences in oncology environment.
