Winnicott in the Clinic - CAPCT Extension Program Winter 2021

Arthur Caspary, Ph.D., C.Psych.
presented by Canadian Association of Psychoanalytic Child Therapists CAPCT)

“Psychotherapy takes place in the overlap of two areas of playing, that of the patient and that of the therapist.”

“Interpretation outside the ripeness of the material is indoctrination.”

Winnicott, in Playing and Reality

Donald Winnicott is perhaps the best known psychoanalyst, save only Freud. He died nearly forty years ago yet continues to be among the most cited authors in the field. His article on transitional space continues to be the single most popular journal in the field of psychoanalysis. It is the ideas developed in this article that will be the primary focus in this course. We will especially focus on their abiding relevance for clinical practice. There will be assigned readings as well as clinical material provided by the instructor. Participants are also encouraged to bring clinical material.

Learning Objectives

• To develop a greater awareness of the psychological state that Winnicott variously called “play” and/or “potential space.”
• To better facilitate, restore and use that shared experience in therapeutic activity.
• To better understand the factors, both developmental and clinical, that inhibit play.
