ANDRADE, Ana Bárbara  and  HERZOG, Regina. Lhe fixity of fantasy in contemporary clinic. Temas psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.25, n.1, pp. 169-179. ISSN 1413-389X.

The goal of this article is to examine fantasy's specificity in contemporary clinic. We intend to analyze the particularities in a fantasy of narcissist under value that is manifested in a privileged form in this clinic, as well as analyze its determinant aspects. The fixity of painful fantasy reveals itself as a problematic that not only makes psychic mobility difficult for the subject, but it also raises obstacles to the mobility of the psychoanalytic practice itself. We will begin with Freud, examining his theoretical elaborations in respect to fantasy, with the intent to underline the positivity in the pleasurable fantasy activity. We will analyze the theoretical-clinical contributions of Winnicott in respect to the immobility and stereotypic of fantasy life. Our hypothesis is that the specificity of the primary relationship established between the subject and the mother figure determines the extent and the mobility of the fantasy. It is our intention to indicate that the fixity of fantasy comes from a traumatic absolute submission relationship to the primary object. It is also our target to develop a theoretical-clinical reflection about how to conduct the analytical treatment of such patients.
