This article is constituted by considerations on an experience of a psycho-dramatic group with patients whom the author had previously followed in individual psychotherapy. The group is composed of five patients as well as the two therapists who take turns in performing and observing. The common feature of all patients is a problem of fusion - to quote Raymond Cahn - in terms of a failure of subjectivity: «What has not been made decipherable to the patients, who are "authorized" in their own being, their drives, their place in the generations to come, their identity». In this paper the author means to explain how difficult the transition to a psychodrama group is for some patients whose personality is defined as "dependent".
Keywords: Psychoanalytic psychodrama, narcissism, fusion, addiction, bereavement, depression
