In the first moments of life, repetition helps access symbolization. For instance, playing hide-and-seek or Fort/Da we can observe the symbolization of alternation between presence and absence. We can then understand how repetition gives life to events by slowly giving them a meaning, how it helps their representation but also how it attempts to take control over traumatic situations initially passively experienced. But it can also be deprived of all fantasmatic foundings. Caregivers in mental care institutions have a lot to do with repetition: repetition of complaints, of behavioural disorders, of acting puts, addictions, stereotypies… How can it be avoided that repetition only be a source of suffering and exhaustion for patients and caregivers ? How can it be understood in order to help psychological work in institutions ?
