This article examines the concepts of care and change that can be applied to a request to take charge of a psychotic patient amongst a psychotherapeutic community. The aim of the therapeutic community is that of realizing a change in the organization of the personality rather than the resolution of a psychological symptomatology. The object relations theory allows us to consider the factors of change as processes that take place through the construction of structuring internal objects that gradually replace those damaged and split in the patient’s internal world. Through a clinical example that retraces the path of insertion of a patient in a community, it is highlighted how the demand for care constitutes one of the results of a process that is based on the construction of a therapeutic relationship.
Keywords: Care; Change; Psychosis; Therapeutic Community; Therapeutic Relationship.
