This paper explores the life trajectories of 86 individuals undergoing psychotherapy and proposes a typology of their occupational, co-residence and intimacy trajectories. The results of this contributions stress that psychiatric patients are social actors who are influenced by society at large and its ongoing process of change. Therefore, it is essential to take into account the diversity of occupational and family trajectories when dealing with individuals in therapeutic settings.
