This book raises the problem of rupture in children through fugue behavior and proposes to identify a psychological etiology of this behavior. After highlighting the difficulty of the existing literature in proposing a specifically psychological aetiology of the phenomenon, he explores, on the basis of systemic and cognitive approaches, the quality of the early and contemporary family interactions of the child that would justify his passage to the act at home in the fugue. The results lead to the development of a psychological profile of the runaway that reveals the existence of some of the vulnerabilities that would be put in place very early in the child and secondly the triggers of the transition to the act that would be contemporary to the fugue. The methodology and the tools used offer a clinical framework for the prevention and even the psychological and social care of the fugue.
