Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) Psychological help with the inmates is provided by law. However this psychotherapeutic practice is atypical. Our study aims to emphasize the particularities of this practice. We met four psychologists providing psychological help to inmates in Brussels prisons. Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA) enabled us to define three major themes : 1) the atypical nature of the request for psychological help in prison, 2) the difficult balance between security and therapeutic stakes, and 3) the sociological as well as the psychological characteristics of the inmates. We propose a reflection on the status of psychotherapy in a forensic environment.
