Psychosomaticians, we clearly position ourselves as allies of doctors, a particular link in the team of health professionals, well beyond the "classic - ordinary" psychotherapeutic support of their reference system.
Our first particularity is theassessment of the psychosomatic risk, diagnosis and prognosis, and the highlighting of theoretical and clinical elements.
Our second particularity, our raison d'être, and that of integrative psychosomatics such as Professor Jean Benjamin Stora raised it during 25 years of consultations at the Pitié Salpêtrière, that of the psychosomatic therapist is indeed to contribute to the reduction of risk, and the extension of life.
Everything depends on the quality of the treatment, its relevance and, above all, on the adjustment to the patient's temporality, of which the resumption of his psychosexual development is only one aspect.
We claim to be specialists, clinicians of the balance of the somato-psychic unit.
We claim to be a correspondent to whom the doctor can refer his patients in confidence, a correspondent who is able (and who must) report on the returns and the progress of the work, as the doctor is entitled to expect from other specialists to whom he refers his patients.
A specialist who needs to know what he is doing, why he is doing it, and when he is doing it.
