Aim The contribution reports on a pre-test pilot study, based on the single-case method (N>1 and N=1 one by one) aimed to investigate whether resilience factors regards self-narrative representation, self-esteem and their likely correlation in child suffering from tumour. Methods The administration of specific investigation instruments (T.M.A. – multidimensional self-esteem test and a narrative inquiry framed on purpose) has been planned by the survey. The participating subjects set up a group of 7 children, 8 to 12 year olds, suffering from tumour. The individuation of such subjects has been carried out in terms of some “drawing variables” such as the existence of tumour, its diagnosis (12 months before commencing the research), the continuity of medical treatment and the lack of terminal stage of disease. Results The study has highlighted the lack of a statistically remarkable impairment of self-narrative and self-esteem in children suffering from tumour belonging to the reference group. These levels of self-narrative and self-esteem are possible resilience factors in children suffering of tumours. Conclusions The acquired data about specific resilience elemence in child suffering from tumour directs to research with national and international sample.
