Advances in the treatment of neoplastic diseases have been substantial, in the last decades, and have brought to the forefront patients’ psychological experiences and quality of life. Neoplastic diseases, during childhood - a critical stage in identity, autonomy and relational development - threaten a child’s capacity to adapt. Thus, treatment, in this age group, represents a key moment for studying a young person’s capacity to adapt to severe and stressful events and also to observe the effectiveness of early psychological support. The Authors describe the role of dreams in psychological counseling, or psychotherapy, for young cancer patients and their families. Dreams, in this setting, are examined using a narrative approach, not an interpretative perspective. Dreams and fantasies help the patient to bring to light fears and concerns, often difficult to express.
