This paper is an extract from the thesis “Policies of the encounter and the wild forces in child and young people care” held at the Post-Graduate Program in Psychology of UNESP-Assis. It is a narrative of a story presented through issues pertinent to the psychosocial care clinic with children and young people. The composition of this story had the challenge of diverting from the narrative of unique stories, from the reproduction of only a majority place to allow new perspectives. It was named as the complexity of forces, crossings, and events present in the situations of clinical practices, which give visibility to the different ways of building rapprochement, relationship, and care. This text shows the history of Violeta, a child with autism. Throughout the writing, questions about working with groups in the CAPSij, the corporeity of children and adults, and the strategies of production of the common are highlighted. Such questions are strengthened by the composition with authors such as Deleuze and Guattari, Fernand Deligny, Lapoujade, and Lepecki. It was concluded that betting on the bodies' ability to enter into connection or access primordial communism, by challenging adult-centeredness, maybe strategies triggered in the childhood clinic.
