Jardin thérapeutique et maladie d'Alzheimer : mémoires, jugements artistiques et plaisirs : conservations, transferts, acquisitions

Abstract : This doctorate of psychology thesis work is the result of a collaboration between the Research Group on Communications of the InterPsy Laboratory of the University of Lorraine and the University Hospital (CHRU) of Nancy. Its main objective is to delineate the psychological scaffolding virtues of artwork in patients with Alzheimer's disease during accompanied walks in a healing garden adorned with regional natural and cultural references. In order to study these scaffolding virtues, conversations between a participant and an experimentalist during several walks in this garden were subjected to a pragmatic-dialogical analysis (Batt & Trognon, 2012, Trognon & Batt, 2007) allowing an in-depth exploration of the perceived experiences of the subject and establishing the scientific relationships between garden, art, memories, artistic judgments and emotions. The investigations were supplemented by psychometric tools of thymic evaluation, of aesthetic judgment (the beauty criteria and appreciations) and cognitive processing (recall of artworks of the garden). The principal results are that the repeated use of the garden, in the setting of a social relationship mediated by conversation, favours learning of the recognition of specific art forms and design. The walks in the garden and the interactions with art, contribute to he acquisition of new personal memories without impacting the artistic preferences which remain stable in both Alzheimer's disease patients and control subjects
