FLORENCE, Jean. How to transmit the analytic experience?: Readings of a case-history from D. W. Winnicott. Nat. hum. [online]. 2008, vol.10, n.2, pp.149-165. ISSN 1517-2430.

Beginning with a consideration of what a case study represents, in general, and specifically in the first steps of the discovery of psychoanalysis, I will closely accompany the case the Winnicott presents in a chapter of "Playing and Reality": a case of primary disassociation. I will be very attentive to his manner of analytic interaction. The utilization of dreams has a very original place. I will conclude at a more theoretical level: the status of "fantasizing" in Winnicott compared with the "Phantasieren" of Freud, and the consequence of their practical concepts; and in clinical application, putting into evidence the particular characteristics of the style of transmission that he left us.

Keywords : to fantasize; to dream; to wish; psychoanalytical experience.
