Past traumatic experiences connected to violence in childhood make it difficult for specialists to understand the inner world of child, their skills and problems. In pursuit of studying the psychological functioning and the representation of the Self of children victims of abuse, a pilot study has been conducted, making use of two methodologies; two questionnaires filled in by parents or educators (CBCL, Achenbach, 1991; PROPS, Greenwald, 1996) and Il Bambino nella Pioggia drawing test (Crocetti, 1991). The study, which involved 54 children (18 of the experimental sample and 36 of the control sample), from 5 to 13 years old, highlighted the actual utility of choosing a double information source in this area of study to understand the differences between the groups.
