KRUG, Jefferson Silva y SEMINOTTI, Nedio. Imaginary achievement of unconscious desire in a therapy group of pre-school-aged-children. Ágora (Rio J.) [online]. 2012, vol.15, n.1, pp. 133-149. ISSN 1516-1498. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1516-14982012000100009.
A few theoreticians have observed that groups, as well as dreams, may provide a privileged space for the imaginary achievement of their members' unconscious desires. Through reports of sessions of a therapy group comprising children at pre-school age, this study aimed at learning the organization and expression forms of the group that rendered possible the imaginary achievement of their members' unconscious desires. Qualitative Textual Analysis led to find out that the achievement of desires was possible through the dynamic articulation among the expressed desires, forms of expressions and ways in which the group organizes its processes, influenced by the characteristics of the children's psychosexual development.
