Abstract

After having briefly outlined the evolutional history of the “squiggle game” (from S. Freud’s interpretation of dreams, through C.G. Jung, M. Klein and M. Fordham to M. Milner’s “free drawings”), the “technique” is exposed as it has been developed by Winnicott. We offer comparisons between the use of the tool by Winnicott and their current positions, some variations are exposed in the basic technique, brought together by the crucial role played by reciprocity: “me a little and you a little”. The “squiggle game” is, above all, a method for relating and encouraging mutual exchange between the analyst and the patient (no matter if child, adolescent or adult), enabling him to experience holding and freely explore different communication possibilities.
