DARRAULT-HARRIS, Ivan. The Stratification of the Psychotherapeutic Space. Tóp. Sem [online]. 2010, n.24, pp.55-70. ISSN 2594-0619.

This text tackles the description and analysis of the invisible space of the psychotherapeutic relation enclosed in the plainly visible architecture of institutionalized places devoted to medical care. This specific space appears as a stratification of levels in a mutual relation of presupposition: the enunciative and discursive level presupposes the existence of the level of the wrapper, which in turn presupposes the strength of the level of the ethic pact, and is the fundamental level of that space. As if that were not enough, the invisible level of the psychotherapeutic relation must be built anew for every patient, particularly concerning the enunciative and discursive level, since, according to the art-therapeutic conception of that psychotherapeutic relation, the choice of a creative mediation of a precise substance of creation is always proposed to the patient.
