Place du concept d'émotion exprimée dans les conduites addictives

Abstract : Experimentation among adolescents with illicit substances, particularly cannabis, is increasing. The impact of these consumptions has a major impact on their life's course and the family climate in which they evolve. One way to assess its dynamics is to consider the family relationships using the concept of “Expressed emotion” which is a measure of the family environment, a concept born 50 years ago based on the observations of schizophrenic patients and their families. Indeed, for several decades, studies have shown the influence of “Expressed emotion” and its predictive value for relapse in many severe psychiatric disorders. In the field of addiction, the question of the EE has been less discussed. The mechanisms and the development of “Expressed emotion” reasons are still unclear. In the literature, there is indeed a lot of research dealing with psychiatric disease association and addiction but not on the effect of EE on substance use issues with or without comorbidity. Thus, the objective of this article, after recalling briefly the concept of “Expressed emotion”, is to review the studies on this topic in the field of addiction and discuss factors behind “Expressed emotion” to consider tracks resulting in terms of research and treatment.
