Abstract: Amalia, aged 14, was born in France, in a Portuguese family. Amalia’s mother requests psychological counselling. At the first session she comes alone. Displaying a skeptic attitude, she claims that her daughter experiences two classes of symptoms: possession by a dead person’s spirit and emotional disturbances, nightmares, breathing difficulties, spasmophilia. This article develops mainly two theoretical hypotheses as well as the technical arrangements necessary in the carrying out of the work of psychotherapy.
