Easy-to-read book from a great psychologist 24 Oct. 2000
By T. Adshead - Published on
Format: Paperback
These are a set of collected articles, many of them transcripts of radio talks given by Winnicott, who is one of the best regarded child psychologists in the UK. I bought this shortly after the birth of our daughter, our first child, and expect to return to it a lot in the coming years. Basically, Winnicott talks about how to introduce the word "no" to your child, and that although you may never be as good a parent as you want to be, often genuinely wanting to be a good parent is enough. That's what I got from the first reading - I will read it again, several times, and expect that both I and my daughter will benefit a lot from it. It is easy to read, with gentle humour, by a man who really cares about children and their parents.

Classic Wisdom 2 Jan. 2013
By Dixie Noble, Ph.D. - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a retired Certified Psychoanalyst, Psychologist and MFT. This book is a MUST on the shelves of therapists, counselors, parents and patients. This book holds the wisdom and understanding of this great, creative thinker who cares deeply about personality development, family dynamics and understanding the child. It is a joy to read.
