Clinical references to the group work with children and adolescents: body language

In this paper we explore the body dimension of group dynamics, the body language that expresses and signifies the affects. Some clinical vignettes involving a group of children and a group of adolescents are presented to exemplify the relationships as they unfold through action capable of giving a communicable form to thought. In this exploration of a field of collective forces, where both the known and the unknown are met, we observe the movements generated by the group. In this paper we acknowledge the value of action that can condensate and outline pain as far as  constructing its meaning.
