The article aims to examine the importance of the body in the analytic space in the transference- countertransference relationship. Starting from the prenatal, following the trend of infant research to reach neurosciences, it shows the importance of reciprocity in the relationship and of an affective emotional communication. In clinical work with children, the analyst is often working beyond a verbal space, in contact with feelings and sensations that the mind is not able to contain and there slip into the body. The trickster-rascal as a "psychical archetypal instance" plunges powerfully into clinic, forcing the analyst to a constant internal work of connection and communication between the ego and the unconscious.
