COSTA, Márcia Regina Lima  and  COHEN, Ruth Helena Pinto. The subject-child and their surprises. Trivium [online]. 2012, vol.4, n.1, pp.59-64. ISSN 2176-4891.

In this article we develop the idea that even when the child, with a cancer diagnosis, is seen as fragile and dependent, is possible to create a space where they can give way to say through the play. We believe that in dealing with physical pain, psychological distress and the possibility of death as is possible, through the specificity of contingent encounters, promoting a differentiated listening and a creative play for the subject-child find their outputs. from the network between Psychoanalysis, Physical Education and Medicine, thought the play, were explained some ways in which the child can see facilitated the development of cancer diagnosis and treatment. By favouring the uniqueness of each individual involved in this process, coming from a speech made in the hospital, we demonstrate the inventions of some imaginary and symbolic subject-children surprised us at every meeting, demonstrating how to play, network entangled by the three disciplines above, served as facilitator in dealing with psychic pain, when the diagnosis is cancer.
