Entre maladie et handicap : repenser la critique psychiatrique de la loi du 30 juin 1975 d’orientation en faveur des personnes handicapées

Abstract : This article analyzes the controversy raised among psychiatrists by the law of the 30 June 1975 in favor of disabled people in France in the second half of the 1970s. This controversy played a major role in stabilizing definitions and representations of categories of disability and mental disorder, which still bear a strong influence on today's French debates upon “handicap psychique”. The first part of the article shows how the controversy emerged within the reform dynamics that dominated French health and social policies in the 1960s and 1970s. The second part examines the specific debate concerning a project of nursing homes for long-term mentally disordered people that took place within this controversy in order to show how it contributed to the redefinition of psychiatric chronicity.
