Impact of a therapeutic setting on children living in institutional care.

Units : Unit of Developmental and Family Psychology | ULB100

Description :

This study addresses the institutional care of children suffering from behavioral troubles and/or exposed to parental failures.
When they are placed, these children show delays at different levels of  their intellectual, linguistic, interpersonal and
socio-emotional developments. We want to demonstrate how our multi-disciplinary therapeutic  settings allow recovery of psychic process,
more secure attachment and less disorganized identification. In parallel, we identify some elements in family dynamics, that are
playing a role both in risk factor or protection for physical and mental health of family members.
