The purpose of our study is to contribute to the understanding of the mechanisms playing a role in the deconstruction of mental suffering. With the support of the Luxembourgish RE.SO.NORD (REseau du centre SOcial de la région du NORD), a diagnosis of the sufferings of people living in rural districts was completed with the first-line health and social professionals who work with their clients on a daily basis. Twenty-six professionals participated in interviews during which they described the sufferings of their clients. They appeared as the effects of a drift and show how the amplification process of psychic sufferings (permanent anxiety, depression, etc.) and the accumulation of social and family factors (job loss, family separation, etc.) can lead to the emergence of critical mental health conditions. In this logic of paroxystic gradation, mental health problems may aggregate a set of harmful behaviors. This gradation illustrates the state achieved by the clients when their intimate and social domains of life are impeded. The paroxystic suffering represents the state during which the individual seems to fail to cope with their sufferings and is no longer able to recover. The professionals recognize a lack of information and incentive during medical consultation in which their clients dread the fear of being stigmatized. They admit the existence of poor coordination and access to primary health care and a lack of support for those who suffer and their family caregivers in order to prepare them to become actors that can mobilize their "health capability".

This contribution proposes a reflexive review on the beginnings of a research field which can be described as sensitive on different aspects. Starting from a definition of the object “prostitution” and the context in which it is inscribed, the purpose is to describe and discuss the involvement and commitment of the researcher in connection with the different aspects of the production of knowledge, from the access to the field to the restitution concerning a topical theme that is debated in a polarized way. From a set of difficulties he can come across, we will show how the researcher, at the different steps of the research, has to take a stand, or at least to say on which side he is. [less ▲]
