Psychose pour tous : la jeunesse au risque du« syndrome de psychose atténuée ?

Abstract : Numerous studies have revealed hallucinatory and delirious experiences among children and adolescents for whom the diagnosis of psychosis does not seem to be relevant. While various models exist to think about the differential clinical aspects of such reputedly psychotic experiences, the fifth version of the Diagnostic and Statistic Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) proposes to call such experiences “attenuated psychotic symptoms,” suggesting a “risk of psychosis,” which needs to be treated as quickly as possible in order to improve the prognosis. In this article, we propose a review of the literature so as to understand what is implied by this new “attenuated syndrome of psychosis” in regard to its possible application for young patients. This literature review leads us to study the hallucinatory and transitory experiences that occur during adolescence more generally, to address the question of their treatment and their impact on our understanding of the prodromal signs of psychosis, starting with a completely dimensional model of psychosis, taking into account the specificity of adolescence, particularly recourse to beliefs and paranormal experiences in their function of structuring strategies.
