SOUZA, Simone Vieira de; CAMARGO, Denise de  and  BULGACOV, Yara Lucia M.. Emotion expressed through the drawings of a hospitalized child. Psicol. estud. [online]. 2003, vol.8, n.1, pp.101-109. ISSN 1807-0329.

The purpose of this paper is to report the experience of a case study of a kindergarten level hospitalized child. The center of interest in this study is the expression of emotion through the drawings performed by a child in psychotherapy sessions. Drawing is considered an expressive activity. These drawings, in addition to the speech, are analyzed based on the cultural-historic concept. The results showed that drawings are one of the means a child uses to express emotions.

Keywords : drawings; hospitalized child; emotions.
