Summary. The purpose of this research is analyzing the influence of cancer on dream, on personality and on quality of life. At the sample was asked to tell a dream with positive and negative emotional impact and was evaluated with Rorschach test, Visual Analogue Scale, Hospital Anxiety Depression Scale, Mini-Mental Adjustment to Cancer Scale, and European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality-of Life Questionnaire. The results were interesting and show important correlations among Rorschach test, dreams and rating scales. These results give important indications about the activation of psychodynamic psychotherapy for oncological patients.
