Review

'Psychiatrists and social scientists, sitting half-way between the priest and engineer, enjoy a hot spot in our democracy. It takes a man with Winnicott’s creative flair to assure us that some can preserve their integrity while sitting there.' - New Society

Format: Paperback
This the 5th re-printing of an excellent description and application of human developmental theory and the importance of relationship, encouragement, and respect for the developing human. Everyone studying the Adlerian approach as well as those studying other approaches will find this book both informative and timeless.
I find D.W. Winnicott's writing style easy to follow.

Format: Paperback
Bowlby and Winnicott where two of the pioneers of attachment theory and child psychology in the UK, their thinking informs and underpins a lot of past and present social policy, including the architecture of childrens services and family and child care social services.

This book is particularly enlightening in this respect in its chapter on compensating the deprived child for the loss of family life, much like Bowlby's writing about fostering in the out of print Childcare and The Growth of Love.

The book's first half outlines the importance to emotional development of family life and some of the consequences to the individual of disruptive patterns of parenting, family psychosis or depressive illness. The second half of the book deals with advice to parents, casework with mentally ill children, deprivation, group influence, maladjustment and even democracy.

Emotional development has major consequences for an individual's resilence or vulnerability to life stress, this point is made clearly by Winnicott and I think any individual or family could benefit from the insights they could get from this book.

While it could be considered of a more literary value in comparison with other more recent developmental psychology reads on attachment and attunement like Daniel J. Siegel, it is a very readable, accessible and interesting account. It's one of the most accessible of Winnicott's books which I would recommend to anyone casual reader, student or professional.

The book has a great contents, huge and exacting index and some great further sources from the range of routledge classics on related topics.

The most valuable book that I have purchased by Winnicott. I am elated every time i read a book by this author. He's the most fantastic writer, understandable and contemporary. He reviews works by his pre-successors, which makes his work applicable and up to date. Great book for everyone, to understand your own shortcomings/advantages in terms of a family life and appreciate the environmental provision. I also strongly recommend 'Play and reality' as it gives in depth contact with human nature.
