  • Psychical Processes (originally published as Les processus psychiques, May 2009, Les Neurones moteurs, Paris – 112 pages - ISBN 978-2-918398-00-4)

In this first book, Abadie-Rosier reminds that the omnipresence of personal development, the banalization of psychoanalysis and other psychotherapies, the recrudescence of psychosomatic illnesses (stress, ulcer, asthma, etc.) set psychical processes as the centre of clinical practice—and even of everyday life. From another point of view, the come back of asylum psychiatry, over-prescription of psychotropic drugs and the chemical camisole it leads to, the aberrant dysfunctionning of penitentiary psychiatry question about the place let to the subject’s freedom and plead for a wider use of psychotherapies (in particular psychoanalysis), therefore for a better understanding of psychical processes.

  • The Psychological Construction of the Subject(originally published as La construction psychologique du sujet, November 2009, Les Neurones moteurs, Paris - 236 pages - ISBN 978-2-918398-01-1).

This book describes the successive stages of the construction of character and identity, from a psychoanalytical point of view, from newborn to adult. It is an original synthesis of different theories (Sigmund Freud, Viktor Tausk, Karl Abraham, Anna Freud, Melanie Klein, René Laforgue, Susan Sutherland Isaacs, Margaret Mahler...), showing how psychopathology naturally results from the constant changes and adaptations the subject experiments and faces. It is also a good introduction to psychoanalytical psychopathology, whose influence on sociability and human sexuality it systematically mentions.

  • Criminals' Psychopathological Fortresses (originally published as Les forteresses psychopathologiques du sujet criminel, September 2010, Les Neurones moteurs, Paris - 300 pages - ISBN 978-2-918398-02-8).

Building down the myth of the overgifted criminal, that was popularized by The Silence of the Lambs, Basic Instinct or Dexter, this book suggests the innovative concept of “psychopathological fortress”, through which the criminal phenomenon is analyzed. It offers a typology of 5 fortresses- a concept that shows its interest in clinics and therapeutic management of such individuals.
