Donald Winnicott is currently the most popular author in contemporary psychoanalysis. His writings are cited in bibliographies even more frequently than those of Sigmund Freud. And yet how many mental health professionals have actually managed to read and digest the nearly twenty published volumes of Winnicott's books, chapters, essays, reviews, and letters?Professor Brett Kahr, an award-winning biographer and scholar of long-standing, has resurrected Donald Woods Winnicott from the dead and has invited him for a memorable cup of tea at 87 Chester Square - Winnicott's London residence - in which the two men discuss Winnicott's life and work in compelling detail.After digesting Kahr's highly accessible "posthumous interview" with Winnicott, readers will have come to acquire a thorough overview of Winnicott's corpus of writings, and will appreciate the historical context in which he scripted his pioneering psychoanalytical contributions.A highly creative exercise in "imaginative non-fiction", this book - the first in a new series entitled Interviews with Icons - will delight novices and experienced professionals alike.Lavishly illustrated by Alison Bechdel, winner of the MacArthur Foundation "Genius" award, with original drawings of Winnicott based on unpublished photographs of Winnicott from Kahr's own archive, this book will be the perfect guide for both Winnicott students and scholars, and the ideal gift for colleagues with an interest in the man and his work.

Second edition. Jan Abram's lexicon - The Language of Winnicott - has proved to be the definitive comprehensive guide to Winnicott's thought since it was first published in 1996, Winnicott's centenary Year. The twenty-two entries represent the major conceptualisations in Winnicott's theories and take the reader on a journey through his writings that span from 1931 to 1971. Thus the volume is an anthology of Winnicott's writings. This new edition expands on each original entry predicated on Abram's research discoveries, including archival material, over the past decade. THIS IS THE HARDBACK EDITION - for the paperback edition see catalogue number 24508.

This volume in a book series on psychoanalytic leaders, provides a geographically global sampler of writing stemming from Winnicott's complex and paradoxical thinking. In the first section, on his work and legacy, his thinking is put into a context to reveal something of the origins, significant milestones, contemporary development, and theoretical expansion of his thinking. In the second section, there is a recognition of the fact that Winnicott privileged clinical work. This section aims to illustrate the evolution of theory, expansion of concepts and applications of Winnicott's body of work to the clinical situation with both children and adults in a variety of settings which include private practice, the health services and residential programmes in a varied array of settings worldwide. The third section on applications of Winnicott's work outside the consulting room celebrates his special capacity as a bridge-builder and as a figure whose work has had a very wide appeal and influence. His work continues to grow in its influence and to an unusual degree it informs the work of allied professionals and those in very many different disciplines, domains of thought and work sectors to that of the traditional clinical ones of health and education. Several chapters indicate how his creativity inspired those in the creative disciplines. Lastly, the fourth section provides personal reflections and accounts from those familiar with Winnicott's work or with the man himself and gives the reader an opportunity to experience the evolution of his thinking and influence through the eyes of contributors who have pertinent historical recollections and experiences.

What are the origins of creativity and how can we develop it - whether within ourselves or in others? Not only does Playing and Reality address these questions, it also tackles many more that surround the fundamental issue of the individual self and its relationship with the outside world. In this landmark book of twentieth-century psychology, Winnicott shows the reader how, through the attentive nurturing of creativity from the earliest years, every individual has the opportunity to enjoy a rich and rewarding cultural life. Today, as the 'hothousing' and testing of children begins at an ever-younger age, Winnicott's classic text is a more urgent and topical read than ever before.

Divorce is a complicated process and not a single event. It has major life implications and must be done right. In this regard, the good divorce is an ethical divorce.The Good Divorce does not follow the pattern of the ubiquitous self-help genre - over simplified and formulaic. Nevertheless, it is designed to be helpful by providing an in-depth exploration of the separation process, post-divorce adjustment, telling the children, caring for children from infants to teens, decision-making models, pathologies of divorce and, finally, hope and recovery through creating an important space for discovery. The author is a clinician and the book is written from the well of experience, scholarship and study that professional practice provides. Yet, it is not written academically and is intended for a general as well as professional audience. The reader will find the helpful inclusion of clinical examples and ample opportunities for reflection and deeper thinking into the many issues that arise in divorce for individuals and families. The essential premise is that the impact of divorce is worsened by the way it is handled rather than something necessarily inherent to the event itself. There is a required ethic, which when followed leads to the good divorce. Knowledge is power in this regard.

"This volume brings together Dr. Winnicott's published and unpublished papers on psycho-analysis and child development during the period 1957-1963. The basic concepts of Freud are indexed in relation to Dr. Winnicott's discussions or elaborations of them. Quite often Dr. Winnicott's has taken a Freudian concept as his given frame of reference but has not discussed it as such, and it is intended that the index should in part remedy this by pointing out the links between Dr. Winnicott's ideas and those of Freud." M. Masud Khan from Editorial Note.

One of the most gifted and creative psychoanalysts of his generation, D. W. Winnicott made lasting contributions to our understanding of the minds of children. His ideas have influenced the diverse pyschoanalytic schools of Anna Freud, Melanie Klein, and Hans Kohut. But his reach extends far beyond professional circles: his talks to general audiences over the years won him enormous numbers of followers among parents and teachers who have found his obervations rich in penetrating insight. This collection brings together many of Winnicott's most important pieces, including previously unpublished talks and several essays from books and journals now difficult to obtain. They range widely in topic--from "The Concept of a Healthy Individual" and "The Value of Depression" to "Delinquency as a Sign of Hope"--and elucidate some of Winnicott's seminal ideas, such as the "transitional object" and the concept of false self. All convey Winnicott's vision of the ways in which the developing self interacts with the family and the larger society.
