The article deals with the issue of generativity in relation to the ana-lyst’s creativity, understood as the ability to experience the lack of meaning and the void in the search for Self. The analyst’s negative capacity and creativity are taken into account for the role they play in generating transformation possibilities. A clinical fragment is described in which the analyst’s work of figurability allows the patient to make a dream that shows traces of the original traumatic area.

Keywords: Play, environment, figurability, find, create.
