Brief summary of the presentation:
The pedagogy of Therapeutic Patient Education carries the risk of supporting learning that reinforces a biomedicalization or personal development unrelated to the reality of care. This risk stems from the tension that the actors of this pedagogy feel in their desire to fight against epistemic injustices and their subjection to the processes of standardization and domination at work in health care. In this context, can an autonormative pedagogy of therapeutic education emerge?
