Maniement de l'agressivité et passage à l'acte hétéro ou auto agressif chez les personnalités criminelles : approche clinique comparative à travers l'épreuve projective du Rorschach

Abstract : This work is in line with the current trend towards the contemporary issues pertaining to acting out owing to the major difficulties of taking into care in social and institutional areas. Emotional deprivations which accompany their development disturb any work of mentalising. When excitation impulses exceed the individual capacity to mentally elaborate, the individual will take upon acting out through either behavioural or somatic pathways (J. BERGERET). We have tried to focus on behaviour, more precisely on aggressive acting out in both auto and hetero aggressive dimensions. This thesis contributes to the search of clinical benchmarks in projective psychology by using Rorschach test. It opens with a quick review of various theories around criminal personality and contemporary approaches. It also includes a quick survey of the documentation about Rorschach test. Then follows the review of 40 cases divided in two groups. Fictional capacity seems limited and the mentally elaborating capacity is low in both groups of auto and hetero aggressive patients. It happens that the weak thinking process does not allow enough integration of sexual and aggressive impulses. From a differential point of view, hetero aggressive patients show greater sensitivity to aggressive impulsive excitation, projective mechanics granting them from being submerged by their destroying impulses (M. KLEIN). As they cannot make use of this mechanics in case of hetero aggressive acting out, suicidal patients stay with introjection of the persecution object which they fight in themselves to alleviate their past anxiety.
