Summary. Dreams get a fundamental role in psychodynamic therapies. As soon as we tell patients that dreams are “useful” to analysis it’s likely to occur that either they bring up several of them or they say they do not remember any. In this work we intend to reflect upon resistance and change dynamics put to use through dreams during a path of analysis. The dream of a patient who’s acting for a change in her way of life is related in the work. From a methodological point of view, it is necessary to help patients to select the valuable materials connected to state dream that they offer us. It is necessary to focus on the first dreams they’ve brought up to us and on the last ones; in the meantime identifying crucial dreams could represent, in this perspective, an useful tip for developing of the analysis.
