This delightful book presents a selection of D. W. Winnicott's best writing about children. The remarkable, enduring essays from Babies and Their Mothers and Talking to Parents are here combined with several hard-to-find gems of insight into the world of the child. Each piece was written for a wide audience of parents, childcare professionals, and teachers. In his empathic and witty way, Winnicott ranges over such timeless topics as the mother/infant relationship, trust, instilling a sense of security, negativism, jealousy and moral development. Now, in one volume, anyone who cares about children can enjoy the wisdom of a man many consider to be the most important psychoanalyst since Freud.A Merloyd Lawrence Book

About the Author:

D. W. Winnicott (1896-1974), pediatrician and psychoanalyst, influenced several generations in the fields of child psychiatry, social work, and child development as well as psychoanalysis. He is known especially for his bold and brilliant imagination, and his unique, even poetic style.

From Library Journal:

Before Benjamin Spock and T. Berry Brazelton made a name for themselves, Winnicott (l896-1971) was considered the best pediatrician/psychoanalyst writing about children. The Briton made over 50 broadcasts for the BBC between 1939 and 1962 and wrote more than 20 works. Collected here for the first time in one volume are 26 of his best-known essays, all of which were previously published in one form or another. Spock, Brazelton, and Stanley Greenspan wrote introductions for each of the three sections ("Babies and Their Mothers," "Talking to Parents," and "The Child in the Family"). Winnicott is not an advice-dispenser; rather, he offers insights and observations into babies' emotions and intellect. He places high value on the role of a mother in nurturing her child's psychological development. While his style is conversational and gentle, he quietly probes the ideas of trust, security, jealousy, and early relationships. The result is worthy reading for mothers, students of child development, and others seeking something deeper than a quick-fix handbook.
