Camille Robcis is writing a history of institutional psychotherapy, a psychiatric reform movement born after World War II. Anchored in Marxism and in Lacanian psychoanalysis, institutional psychotherapy advocated a radical restructuring of the asylum, shaping clinics throughout the world and influencing thinkers and activists such as François Tosquelles, Jean Oury, Félix Guattari, Frantz Fanon, and Georges Canguilhem.
