The Challenges of Multidisciplinarity

Issue 3 : March, 2012
ISBN : 9782749215952

Among all the expressions of suffering, the institution offers a variety of therapeutic cares: individual, collective, medical, psychological, functional… There is a multiplicity of approaches, a variety of visions brought onto the patient by the individual care offered in respect with his individuality. A plural approach is also what nourishes the caring dynamic and preserves the institutions of a too important uniformity/conformity. But if diversity can be quite productive, it can also lead to therapeutic fragmentation where each approach blocks out the following or can bring intense confusion to the roles and places and feed into the feeling of an identity insecurity: multidisciplinarity must therefore be set within a certain complementarity, with the coherence and respect of a certain continuity. This is the only guarantee for a patient to fulfill his unity lost within the internal disorganization he is going though. The notion of multidisciplinarity therefore implies a co-disciplinarity, a co-existence of knowledge, experience and competence of the different actors of the institutional stage, in order to follow the same horizon, above the theoretical and practical diversities.
