The image of Peter Pan pounding on the window trying to get his mother's attention as her arms are wrapped around another child and Barrie's account of his childhood project of begging Margaret to answer the question “What about me?” are so clearly alternative versions of the same story that they require little comment. At this juncture, however, objections can be raised about having located and latched onto a childhood memory that happens to coincide with a plot in a story and exaggerating it far beyond its true importance. This chapter discusses the convening of a diagnostic council, described in Chapter 5, whose members were charged with the task of studying case materials and arriving at a consensus regarding critical components of a person's life.

Keywords:   J. M. Barrie, Peter Pan, childhood, diagnostic council
