La psychothérapie en Europe

Spécificités nationales et tendances communes

Paris  -  ENS (École Normale Supérieure)  -  75005
Colloque organisé en collaboration avec le CERMES

Although at its beginning, the development of “psychotherapy” (a category which includes psychoanalysis)had widely been carried out through transnational associations and networks, it rapidly exhibited strong local specificities. However, one can currently observe — especially with the increasing development of mental health public policies -- a powerful tendency towards the homogenization of all its relevant aspects throughout Europe: psychotherapy is not outside of the current wave of globalization which has been
shaping the whole world since the 1980s. Since globalization is a dialectic phenomenon, and not a linear
one, and a process which structures both the global and the local in a complex pattern, this workshop will
aim at understanding this homogenizing process of “psychotherapy” in Europe (which is actually more or
less under American domination) and the reshaping of local psychotherapeutic identities as well.
Following this perspective, the workshop will compare how a number of European countries deal with how the psychotherapy supply is being organized and regulated, along with professional issues and psychotherapeutic theories and methods/modalities at stake.
