Some patients, in order to be able to continue their analysis treatment, must experience the creation of a potential space, as Winnicott states, to restart their lives. In some cases it’s necessary to reach the patient’s primitive areas where words cannot be used, as they have not been generated yet. These patients are supposed to have interrupted their living process due to the absence of this space, which is essential to communication and exchanges with others. In this kind of analysis, the double bound experience between analyst and patient is the only existing means of communication. At first, within this flow, experiences can be transformed into words and then into thoughts, thanks to the relationship doctor-patient. Consequently, after achieving the game area, the patient will manage to proceed with the aim of reaching his/ her own full and potential sense of being. The authoress will describe the use of the so-called words-experience, created in the setting and in the analytic relationship with the patient, which outside could seem pure insanity.
Keywords: words, experience, potential space, creativity, relationship, game.
