Introduction

According to the data found in the literature on clinical psychology, RA refers to the group of psychosomatic diseases, the leading role in occurrence of which is played by negative life events that cause stress.

Objectives

To compare the frequency of negative life events in the areas of family, education, communication with peers in patients with LA before the occurrence of the disease and in a control group of nominally healthy children.

Methods

The biographical methodology of "The life line", the picture of the family, drawings "I am at school", "Me and my friend" and a clinical interview.

Results

Areas

The control group of nominally healthy children with no articular pathology comprised 10 persons aged between 8 and 14 years old (in all, 76 events)
