The foster care aims to offer reparative experiences for youth deprived from family life - a process that can be aided by the psychologist. The return of youth into family life is a priority. Although, the reintegration is still na uncommon event in the Brazilian context. The aim of this professional experience report is to describe the psychological attendance of a youth in foster care, which aimed to facilitate his transition into family life. The attendance take place in a clinic school at the state of Rio Grande do Sul (Brazil), and was based on Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), with emphasis on the trauma narrative. The patient’s life history was portrayed through drawings, making possible the restructure of beliefs and traumatic memories which made him worried about family reintegration and leaving the host house. This report exemplifies a positive adaptation to a foster care institution and subsequent family reintegration, and describes how narrative interventions can be adapted to the work with drawings and mental images. This CBT-FT approach with drawings and mental images shows promise with youth in foster care, as it can facilitate the access and elaboration of traumatic events, as well as the process of family reintegration.
