Denys Ribas is a psychiatrist, child psychiatrist and psychoanalyst. He directed for 8 years the «Revue Française de Psychanalyse» and was for 4 years the President of the Paris Psychoanalytical Society. He has collected a long experience as psychoanalyst in a day hospital for young children, some of whom was autistic. His interest in the death drive comes to him both from the experience of the psychic conflictuality and from his deepening of the specifically autistic problematic, in line with the contributions of Tustin and of Meltzer. He has also worked with Benno Rosenberg, conceiving drive fusion and defusion in their movements in neurosis, in borderline states as well as in psychosomatic states where the somato-psychic balance is disturbed.
