The article presents seven archetypical fairy tales composed to reflect the inner dynamics of some of the most common clinical cases in the practice of child and adolescent psychiatry. These seven stories provide seven collective archetypal images of child suffering. When clothed in a story, the pain is more bearable to live with and to deal with even in the most difficult environment.
