DIB, Eloísa Pelizzon  e  ABRAO, Jorge Luís Ferreira. A pre-surgical therapeutic experience: the use of drawing as mediator. Bol. psicol [online]. 2013, vol.63, n.139, pp. 159-174. ISSN 0006-5943.

Hospitalization is usually steeped in fantasies that generate high levels of anxiety, especially for children. Therefore, the hospital psychotherapeutic process must propose actions to enable them to develop internal resources to cope with situation that causes anxiety. This article aims to demonstrate the importance of psychological intervention through drawings as mediators in the pre-surgical context of orthopedic correction in the hospital. This patient made seven drawings that at first expressed her anguish towards the surgery and at the end showed her attempt to elaborate. We conclude that drawing is an important therapeutic tool in the hospital.
