Charlotte Costantino: Beginning the story

The author explores the therapeutic potential of storytelling mediation, using her experience with a group therapeutic setting for hospitalized adolescents. How does that mediation provide the encounter with a psychoanalyst and the beginning of a therapeutic process? Regarding the symbolizing potential of storytelling, how would its use in a therapeutic setting facilitate the organization of traumatic experiences associated with puberty, echoing the dream work?
