Image du corps alcoolique : la représentation dans l'alcoolisme chronique et l'alcoolisme intermittent

Abstract : The alcoholic body image is traditionally recognized as being extremely fragile. Presenting major defects in body image envelopes, it appears to be marked by the absence of units and limits. This qualitative and exploratory study of two very different clinical cases, based on Rorschach’s tests, revealed major disturbances that are nevertheless expressed in various ways according to the type of alcohol abuse: body image subject to “deformation” in chronic alcoholism; “co-fusion” movements, leading to osmosis in intermittent alcoholism. These specific lesions could be explained by the particular relationship to alcohol. Apart from the subject’s implication in the outside world, these elements should be considered from a therapeutic point of view, especially in approaches that try to rehabilitate the alcoholic’s body image.
