Fabienne has been trained since 1993 to the practices of the socio-constructionist ideas applied to clinical setting and has loved this continual challenge in her life. She has worked for 6 years in the most challenging contexts of Los Angeles area and likes to defy the ideas of “difficult or impossible situations”. She has a background in Family Therapy and more specifically, Narrative Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy and the inspiring ideas of Harlene Anderson. She has trained at the Erickson Institute in Phoenix and admires the work of Erickson. She and her beloved husband André created last year their own institute: Institute of Reflexive Practices. She is interested in building theories of practice that applies to the constant transformation of each evolving alliance and responding to ethics-in-practice and a need of a clear and constant positioning of the clinician. The interstice of psychotherapy process research and its necessary relationship to practice is at the heart of her interest.
