A systemic psychosocial medical approach to violence

Olivier Kabangu, Emmanuel de Becker Published in the journal : April 2021 Category : Psychiatrie infanto-juvénile

Summary :

A difficulty for professionals in regular contact with psychic suffering often lies in the multiple repercussions of the situations encountered. Indeed, medico-psycho-social situations, which are usually worrying, exert a violent potential impact. Violence can be expressed in a noisy way or more insidiously, and on the societal level, as well. The systemic approach and its holistic declination provide relevant avenues of management. This contribution recalls the precise functions of this systemic approach, emphasizing the concepts of belonging and disengagement, while providing among other things a most original medium: the belonging program.
