When an institution cares for paediatric oncologic diseases, the theme of suffering and the possibility of death are likely to saturate all mental areas of patients, their families, and the health professionals involved. Language becomes packed with "facts", while, due to the high density with which it emerges, the emotional life of the involved subjects takes the form of "turbulence". In considering the disease in the completeness of body and mind, the institution which fosters a group view of care offers the opportunity to reflect on critical issues of working with dying patients, according to the extent of shared awareness.

Keywords: Groupanalysis, oncology, paediatric, hospital, feelings, body.
