Reporting some salient passages of four clinical cases the Author provides an iconic and micro-analytical description of the proceeding of the three phases of the referential process - activation, symbolization, reflection - during the analytic session. The final stage of the analysis of Katy, as described by Bromberg, exemplifies the joint and emotional nature of the process creating new meanings in the three phases; the two sensorimotor psychotherapies, described by Ogden, highlight the nature inherently bodily, sensory and motoric of the dissociated emotion schemas that is necessary and useful to activate during the therapy; finally the case of Ann, described by Cornell, provides an example of the indispensability of the activation in the analytic relationship of the bodily, sensory and motoric experiences afflicting the patient to be able to connect them to the symbolic level and thereby to bring about a actual change. At the end are stressed the multiple roles taking the language in each phase of the process referential.
