The paper reflects on the difficulties when practicing clinical of Psychosomatic Disorders. It is based on Freud and Winnicott's theories to postulate that these illnesses can be understood as a psychic defense related to an archaic organization of the subjective emotional development in which the symbolical function operated by language was not reached by the newborn yet. It focuses on the necessity to include the holding as a beyond interpretation clinical instrument. As an illustration, it presents a clinical case in which the integration movement of the preverbal experiences required the participation of all family members.

Keywords : psychosomatic disorders; psychoanalytic clinic; holding; integration.
