N.26 - Sensoriality, corporeity, and sexuality in the group

Body and images of the body in a group of adolescents in an educational context 

Abstract

The author aims to demonstrate how adolescent corporeity manifests itself within group discussion in school contexts. To be precise, the groups were formed of female members only and presented intense relationships between equals and the peculiarity of the evolutional phase of the those taking part in the group activate complex and articulate transference and counter-transference feelings. The emphasis is placed precisely on the transformative potential in the adolescent body and psyche, amplified by the group setting that , at the same time, facilitates,  the passage from a place impregnated with“physicality”, to a symbolic space of “thinkability”.
