“The Psychoanalytic Treatment of Psychosis:
From Psychotic Experience to Civic Responsibility”


Danielle Bergeron, MD

Dr. Danielle Bergeron is a Supervising Analyst, Psychiatrist and Associate Professor of Psychiatry at Laval University in Quebec City,
in charge of Teaching at Gifric and Director of the 388.


For the last 30 years, the psychoanalysts and psychiatrists of GIFRIC together with a multidisciplinary treatment team have risen to the challenge of treating psychotics elsewhere than the hospital and otherwise than with medication. Their clinical work consists in guiding patients from psychotic experience to civic responsibility. In order to work in this manner, they refuse the form of discrimination that consists in supposing psychosis to be a deficiency due to a brain disease.


On March 11th, 2012, organisers of the University of Montreal’s TEDx conference hosted, as part of their premier edition events, a series of conferences highlighting the talents and innovations of creative individuals in various fields of study. Taking place at la Société des arts technologiques (SAT) in Montreal, psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Danielle Bergeron was invited to speak about the psychoanalytical treatment of psychosis as offered at le 388 in Quebec City.
