The analysis of the symbolic production showed that the main conflict was related to sexual identity, originated in the family history itself. From the results it is possible to conclude that to work on the symbolic expression has a therapeutic role, since it provides a better understanding of the conflicts to all, the psychotherapist, the family and the child.
