L'élaboration de l'image corporelle chez l'enfant atteint d'un cancer. Effets d'un programme d'APA en visio au retour à domicile

Abstract : Introduction: Cancer creates notable repercussions on the physiological, social and psychological level of children with in particular a very strong changing in the perception of the body image. To avoid psychopathological consequences, it seems necessary to take into account this dimension. The national institute of cancer shows the importance of a physical practice during and after hospitalization. The SAPATIC system proposed by V@si makes this continuation of the program APA possible back home which could be able to act in the modification of the body image of the child. Objective: Show the effects of a program of physical activities adapted in visio on the physical image of the children affected by cancer when they are back home. Method: We studied two children affected by a leukemia after their return home over a period of 5 weeks. The APA program visio overseen by a professional consisted of 2 sessions a week. To report the effects of this program, an evaluation of the body image was realized at the beginning and at the end of the program. Results: The score obtained at the survey as well as the test of the drawing show an improvement of the body image for both children at the end of 5 weeks of practice. The interviews but also the observation in situ show that the APA allow the child to find a more muscular, more energetic body and a source of pleasure. The pursuit of the program after leaving the hospital allows us to accompany the individual in the modification of his body image and in the reappropriation of his body. Conclusion: the program of APA visio when the child is back home accompanies him in a positive reappropriation of his body.
