The author highlights the relationship between the Jungian analytical model and the treatment of psychosis, using the dimension of the myth and the collective unconscious.The article starts from the experience carried out within an institutional context, an intermediate residential structure for the treatment of psychiatric patients with severe pathologies, where analytical work confronted both with the patienttherapist relational dynamics and with the group-institution system. The analytical work, in that sense, made use of the mythological heritage to acquire images, symbols and emotions that allowed a better understanding of the experience and language of the psychotic dimension.
Keywords: Myth, Image, Medusa, Delirium
