Recherche d’un traumatisme lors de l’annonce diagnostique en oncologie : représentation subjective de l’annonce diagnostique par le dessin

Abstract : This study aims to evaluate the effects of a research protocol based on the use of drawing, in the trauma psychological care associated with the cancer diagnosis announcement. Our objective is to highlight that drawing is a relevant therapeutic tool for the psychological care of an adult population by its projective dimension, using a creative process. The presentation of the case of Laurence illustrates our research protocol. In the context of a recent diagnosis announcement (less than a month), we proceeded to three meetings at intervals of about three weeks. A drawing representing the moment of the diagnosis announcement was requested and carried out at each session and a questionnaire evaluating the traumatic impact of the diagnosis announcement was scored, before the first drawing and then after the last one. The results show an effect of the research device regarding the scores of the Impact of Event Scale Revised (IES-R) and the analysis of drawing/discourse relationships, as a mirror of the trauma elaborating work during the follow-up. Using drawing as a therapeutic tool in adult oncology proves to be a possible and relevant option for psychologists, to care psycho-trauma situations.
