Book Description

1 Jan 1990 Maresfield Library
Dr Winnicott explores the idea that mental health disorders relate to failures of development in infancy. Without denying the importance of inheritance, he has developed the theory that schizophrenic illness shows up as the negative of processes that can be traced in detail as the positive processes of maturation in infancy and early childhood.

Product Description

From the Publisher

Studies in the theory of emotional development
The collection of papers which forms The Maturational Processes and the Facilitating Environment has, as its main theme, the carrying back of the application of Freud's theories to infancy. Freud showed that psycho-neurosis has its point of origin in the interpersonal relationships of the first maturity, belonging to the toddler age. Dr Winnicott explores the idea that mental hospital disorders relate to failures of development in infancy. Without denying the importance of inheritance, he has developed the theory that schizophrenic illness shows up as the negative of processes that can be traced in detail as the positive processes of maturation in infancy and early childhood.

About the Author

Donald Winnicott (1896-1971) was trained in paediatrics, a profession that he practiced to the end of his life, in particular at the Paddington Green Children's Hospital. He began analysis with James Strachey in 1923, became a member of the British Psycho-Analytical Society in 1935, and twice served as its President. He was also a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and of the British Psychological Society.

4.0 out of 5 stars Maturational Process 29 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A classic text, well written with several interesting cases of how child psychotherapy has developed in this model. It is rather expensive for what is a set of lectures not a formal text book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book 2 Jan 2012
By Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I bought this book as a suppliment to my graduate school readings, and it is fantastic. This book is a collection of Winnicott's papers on Object Relations. I only planned on reading a few chapters, but it was so good that I read the majority of it. Some of the chapters repeat information already described, but it is done so in a way that is not boring, and helped me better remember the concepts Winnicott discussed. I would highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 7 Nov 2011
By Rich - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am more than satisfied with the book. It gave me a great deal of the background and fundamental information about the early creation of neurotic and psychotic development of identity problems that begin in early infancy and childhood, and appear later in adult behaviors. It is very thorough, in my opinion, and it has much to offer for studying and understanding counseling. I am happy to have it in my library to review, and my copy is already 'tabbed' and 'underlined' for future referencing. The book is rather technical, so some background in psychology and counseling is helpful. (I value it more than any of the textbooks I have from graduate school.) It is written in "English" rather than "American" so some of the structure of the word spelling, word choice, and sentence structure can be distracting. Overall it is an excellent information source for me, and I am very happy I purchased it.

5.0 out of 5 stars How we form 19 Feb 2009
By Tim the Duke - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Why we are criminals saints, and sinners. Why we turn out bad and good, all in a few pages. Winnicott draws on his works as both a pediatrician and later a psychoanalyst to shed light on the processes of healthy maturational processes and the unhealthy maturational processes and environments which ultimately lead to mental illness.
5.0 out of 5 stars important contribution to understanding growth 26 May 2013
By Stephen J.Brandow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I used this book in a discussion of developmental psychology. The author provides important insights into how the false self is formed.
