FINGER SCHNEIDER, Raquel Elisabete  e  TOROSSIAN, Sandra Djambolakdijan. Fairy tales: from their origin to contemporary clinic. Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2009, vol.15, n.2, pp. 132-148. ISSN 1677-1168.

Fairy tales have been known since antiquity and their influence on and relevance to children nowadays are unquestionable. The objective of this bibliographic review is to contribute to psychoanalytical studies in what concerns the analytical understanding of those rich stories of children’s literature, especially regarding their therapeutic applicability to psychological clinic. First we reviewed the literature in order to find material to elucidate their origin and to advise their use in clinical psychology research. We then proceeded to recommend the applicability of fairy tales to clinical practice, with basis on in different theoretical views. In contemporary psychoanalytic clinic, it is common to use fairy tales with children for diagnosis and treatment, as a form of expression and symbolization of suffering.

Palavras-chave : fairy tales; psychoanalysis; therapeutic applicability.
