Therapeutic mediation is defined as being a practice that uses an activity (painting, modelling, writing, theatre…) to help express psychic suffering in a relationship that is experienced as being less violent than a face-to-face session with the therapist. It looks at and uses typical game formats in which an unconscious psychic issue is transferred. This work offers a multidisci- plinary exploration of therapeutic mediation (anthropology, criminolo- gy, neurosciences, philosophy, clinical psychology) based on typical games, since the game is viewed as a symbolisation mechanism in psychoanalytical theory. This book offers clinical psychologists an interna- tional expertise at the service of therapeutic mediation and ready-to-use tools in the form of evaluation tables.
