Beyond Lacan's structural approach of psychosis, we met the depths of our patients' experience, thanks to the interdisciplinary tradition originated in Chicago around Jane Addams and others.   Our own position in between being researchers in an advanced studies school for social sciences, and our psychodynamic work, as psychoanalysts for psychosis and traumas in public psychiatric hospitals and private practice, meets what H.S.  Sullivan calls "the fusion of psychiatry and social sciences".  This encounter seems to us particularly timely today, when research on a particular case in the long range, appears recently as a way of healing, also in the realm of biology.  Clinical vignettes illustrate our talk.
