Jozine and Edson are now friends. They met in the ambulatory and are part of a project I started in 2006/2007 that consist in gathering with me to chat, exchange informations and experiences in the adolescence phase.
Since I work at the Hospital das Clinicas for 14 years , I met them when they were babies!!
Now we are working some aspects like fantasies that sometimes are not so peacefull. They have some fears about what they imagine, about some images of monsters, spirits in dreams…. let’s remind that when we were adolescence our fantasy world of childhood didn’t disappear…it just had to find a “logical” place in our world to not look crazy or childish!
As I psychotherapist I don’t agree in banishing or adjusting our fantasy world but instead try to learn to use it in a creative way. Our fantasy world is full of energy through the infinite images: the “good” and “so called “bad”ones too>
So I incentive them to communicate with these images of dreams drawing them, talking about them…
We are in the phase of drawing and talking about their productions….
I’ll continue later….
