A description of three-body weakly bound systems using the Transformed Harmonic Oscillator (THO) method is presented and applied to the study of the Borromean nucleus 6He. First, relevant structure observables are studied. Then, the THO method is applied to the study of 6He scattering within the Continuum-Discretized Coupled Channels (CDCC) framework.
