ROJAS-URREGO, Alejandro e BARON B, Olga Patricia. Some Contributions of the French School to Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. rev.colomb.psiquiatr. [online]. 2009, vol.38, suppl.1, pp. 66-81. ISSN 0034-7450.
Introduction: In this article a brief historical review of child and adolescent psychiatry in France is made, and subsequently three key aspects are addressed in depth: the importance given to the clinical-psychopathological reflection, the fundamental role played by the evolutionary dimension in child and adolescent psychiatry, and the relevance of institutional work in treatment options. Objective: To describe what the authors consider are the main contributions of the French school to child and adolescent psychiatry. Method: Literature revision. Results and Conclusions: Knowing the contributions of the different schools as regards child and adolescent psychiatry, makes it possible to grasp the specificity of each one, to contrast the differences and disagreements between them, and to seek (whenever possible) an eventual integration of their various contributions.
