Synopsis

Home is Where We Start from Essays by a Psychoanalyst by D. W. Winnicott, Clare Winnicott

This collection brings together some of psychoanalyst D.W. Winnicott's most important work contributing to our understanding of the minds of children. The essays range in topic from The Concept of a Healthy Individual and The Value of Depression to Delinquancy as a sign of Hope . All reveal Winnicott's vision of the ways in which the developing self interacts with the family and the larger society.

About the Author

D.W. Winnicott (1896-1971) was the first paediatrician in Britain to train as a psychoanalyst. In over forty years of clinical practice at the Paddington Green Children's Hospital, he brought unprecedented skill to the relatively new discipline of the psychoanalysis of children. His work is increasingly being regarded as one of the most influential contributions to psychoanalysis since Freud. His wife, Clare, was a renowned social worker.
