Addiction à l'alcool, objet concret et régulation des éprouvés internes

Abstract : Clinical work with alcoholics led us to examine intra-psychic tensions that existed prior to alcoholism and to foresee using them as a strategy for controlling—external, specific, and illusory—their “indescribable” internal feelings. This paper aligns with other psychoanalytical work on addition and group psychodrama. First, it specifies the psycho-pathological effects of failing to constitute an internal object on the psychotherapeutic setting. Then, based on clinical examples from our group practice, this paper emphasizes the function of “concrete object” in the implementation of a symbolization process.
