Both the art and point of view of Sait Faik are developed on love of human. In these stories human and environment are seen without limited by the rules. The free lifestyle of Sait Faik must be the reason. 20th and 21st centuries are the periods of individual, loneliness, strangeness but also the periods of which the importance of sociopsychology is understood. In this article, it was tried to examine the “There is a snake in Alemdag” story by psychodynamic look with the individual-society, naturalism-strangeness, inner world-projected world bounds. The first aim of therapeutic approach is to understand the human. For every person, the main guide is his or her original existence and story. It could believe that there is no total theory or approach that can reveal all the people.

So that it was tried to approach to hero of this story of Sait Faik who says “Everything begins by loving somebody” with the same approach.
