He gives me a questioning look and I tell him that he can use whatever toys he wishes. Immediately delighted, he looks at them and places some in the sand. He grabs all the horses he sees, both big and little ones, and places them upside down in the sand so that only their legs are showing. By not letting the horses stand right side up, he shows me how life appears to him. His entire existence has suddenly been turned upside down, just like the horses. He wants his father to look at the horses, but Fredrik cannot concentrate on them so Victor continues his play.

How has this severe trauma affected him psychically and socially? He has been through so much that can be traumatizing in the extreme. The death of his mother and baby brother, of course, the frightful experience of the accident itself, the changed behaviour of his father and all those surrounding him, plus being a survivor. Which one or combination of these is at the root of Victor’s brave and cheerful outward behaviour? For the psychological assessment, Victor will be spending time playing and interacting with me in the playroom.

I ask him, “Do you want to go back to the other room with me? ” Victor hesitates a little, but wants to go back to the sand tray and the toys. He gives me his little hand, I take it, and we return to the playroom. I sit down next to the shelf with all the little dolls on it, to see if I can get him to join me there. He comes and picks out some dolls that represent male figures. He looks at them carefully, laughs out loud, and runs to show his dad an elderly man doll with very little hair. Fredrik looks at it and says that it resembles Victor’s maternal grandfather.
