Résumé : Mediated visits are an institutional setting with parents and their children which can't have contacts without a third person. The following article presents the theoretical framework and specificities of theses visits: process, procedure and containment function. In our exposed clinical situation, we formulate the hypothesis that this containment function transforms archaic suffering into thoughts elements. In this situation, the therapists lend to the family members their function of thinking and their ability to play while observing the interactions with the family. A new relationship with psychic contents and external objects appears.
