This research takes as one of its main interests the role of imaginary identification in the psychoanalytical approach of psychotics gathered together in a small group device. The study of psychoanalytical theories on group functioning and the therapeutic handling of mono-symptomatic groups provided the starting point of our inquires. The specificity of identification in psychotics and the possibility of improving the creation of social ties amongst members of a group of such patients by means of identification processes was the focus of the main part of our work.
