    Intercultural communication in hospitals has already been the object of many inter-disciplinary studies. In the present article, my analysis will focus on two aspects: first, intercultural communication in psychiatry, and secondly, their linguistic consequences. I am interested in an approach of the «intercultural» notion that strives to identify knowledge and understanding. This is a similar approach in psychiatric consultation during which decoding the subjects’ implications and negotiations are used for constructing not only inter-comprehension but also the means for recovery.
