Le pluralisme thérapeutique des migrants et héritiers de l’exil maghrébin en France. Nouvelles données et perspectives

Abstract : Treatment of Maghreb patients is characterised by the practice of medical pluralism. Many of these patients, immigrants or born in France, resort to practices popular in the Maghreb (fqih, roqya, prayer and dewitching). The existence of these practices can be explained as much by maintaining the culture of the country of immigration and the social trajectory as by the time spent in the host country or the migration experience. The patients and their relatives are not anchored in a culture of origin, which explains their actions as they do not believe in or fully adhere to the aetiology of mental disorders. An available solution, easy to access, and dissatisfaction of psychiatry explain the pragmatism demonstrated by patients and their relatives who use a variety of treatments. Popular remedies may be carried out in France or when returning to the country of origin where Maghreb patients may also consult psychiatrists with whom they share cultural sensitivity. Medical pluralism of Maghreb patients in France represents a transnational modality.
