Thinking and healing the symptoms of the body through an approach to the mind: at the crossroads of psychology, psychoanalysis, neuroscience and medicine. How can we better care for somatic patients? This is the theme of this book, designed to help doctors and therapists better understand the relationship between body and mind, thanks to a new theoretical and clinical approach: integrative psychosomatics. This approach combines psychology, psychoanalysis, neuroscience and medicine to provide a comprehensive response that's better adapted to the patient. It has been developed over the last 30 years at the Pitié-Salpêtrière hospital, in the context of a psychosomatic consultation open to all hospital departments.
Through the study of neuropsychosomatic and neuropsychoanalytic models, the role of masochism in somatization processes, narcissism, female sexuality... Jean Benjamin Stora presents the different intervention frameworks and devices that can be integrated into his clinic to support the patient.

Pr JB Stora was President of the Ecole Psychosomatique de Paris in the 90s. Subsequently, his work at his Psychosomatics consultation at the Groupement Hospitalo-Universitaire Pitié-Salpêtrière led him to develop a new discipline, Integrative Psychosomatics, underpinned by a scientific model of "Metapsychosomatics". The latter underpins the tension of knowledge between three disciplines: biomedicine, neuroscience and metapsychology. Following on from his previous works, this book explains the model and its paradigm, in which the individual is perceived and investigated as a whole, i.e. as a "psychosomatic unit". Clinical and therapeutic orientations are outlined in 15 case studies.
While the idea of the psychogenesis of somatic illnesses is radically opposed, understanding and treating the individual in a holistic way logically requires integrating into his overall defense system that part of mental functioning which comes under the mind as the most evolved level of the living being in the Darwinian sense. This is an important book for doctors, clinicians and psycho-practitioners alike. Where it makes sense is the idea that somatic patient care should not only concern the diseased organ or biological system alone, divorced from the spirit it brings into existence. It must also take care of the ... person of the patient.

There is no unanimous definition of the term intelligence. The fact is that the concept covers multiple aspects. Logic-rational, emotional, bodily, intuitive, creative... Human, animal, vegetable... Natural, artificial...
