DU Paris 8 "Relationship clinic and strategic intervention"

Nathalie DURIEZ and Grégoire VITRY

Obtaining the DU Paris 8 "Relationship clinic and strategic approach" is subject to the validation of your training courses as well as the formalization of your practice nourished and illustrated by concrete and real experimentation in a professional setting, allowing you to Assess mastery of theoretical concepts and their implementation. This formalization is the subject of a dissertation and a defense before a jury.


This module includes three 3-hour sessions, the writing of a thesis or a case study restoring a practice carried out in the professional context as well as the defense of 20 to 30' of your thesis or your case study.

  • The first presents the expectations of the formalization of your practice. Each student presents his projects, his questions or his difficulties in finding the field of his practical experimentation which will be the subject of this formalization (dissertation or case study).
  • During the two following sessions, a point will be made on the progress or the reorientations carried out or to be planned for the field project, the subject of the thesis. 
  • The thesis or the case study are due at the end of the summer
  • The defense is scheduled in the following month
