Les guérisseurs traditionnels corses : approche psychanalytique du "don de guérison" et du rituel thérapeutique

Abstract : Sacred rituals are at the center of traditional therapeutic practices. The island of Corsica is home to different types of traditherapists, notably the signadori. They show a particular connection between a transitioning social discourse, their own psychic conflicts and the demand. This clinical research, with an ethnopsychoanalytic perspective, is based on interviews conducted in the field with healers. Data collected were analysed in accordance with the standardised IPA (Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis) method. A psychopathological episode, also considered as an « initiatory crisis » in hindsight, would lead to the « gift ». It represents a system of symbolic exchange, underpinned by the original debt, which dialectises ambivalence and otherness. The hold drive is at the center of this system. The prohibitions that secure this drive constitute an intrapsychic sacred space. Their transgression or ritualized reminder could well appear prototypical witchcraft actions and those to conjure them.
