Désordres psychiques, croyances et clinique ethnopsychiatrique

Abstract : At Reunion is. the practice of psycho­therapy has to compose with the inhabitant’s polycultural character. Nume­rous families, consulting at St-Denis’ CMPP, attribute the origin of their psycho­logical disorder to exogenous causations (animistic, mystical or magical). The best way for psycho­therapists is to link their practice to an ethnopsychiatric method. This kind of psychotherapy refers to universal rules and principles: the authors recall is that this practice keeps on an interpretation’s theory which is underlied by a theory of mind.
