This essay comes from the need to get children more involved in family-therapy sessions. The authors introduce conjoint drawing as one of the instruments that allow an active participation of all the family members and of the children in particular, thanks to its simultaneous participation that facilitates the emerging of new meanings. The theoretic frame which the authors are referring to CMM (Coordinated Management of Meaning) considers communication an interactive process in which the subjects can change and exchange meanings in a recursive action involving different hierarchical levels of interaction. The authors place, in an episodic context, the conjoint drawing and they describe its usage in three different situations (public, private, a center for child protection). The experiences are compared and analyzed considering pragmatic, semantic and emotional aspects. The authors reflect on the fact that the various communicative levels involved are always active in the therapeutic process and they have to be considered as coordinates enriching clinical maps related to feelings, emotions and meanings much more complex and systemic as much shared by all family members.
