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.

Thomas Ogden introduces Abram’s dictionary by emphasising the experience of reading Winnicott’s words. Abram’s accomplishment, he writes, is comparable to the Oxford English Dictionary which offers the reader ‘the history of the way a word or term has been used and how that usage has changed and is in the process of further change’. The hall mark of The Language of Winnicott is that it demonstrates how Winnicott’s use of words creates a version of psychoanalysis that is a ‘very living thing’.

Knud Hjulmand has been working on creating a definitive Winnicott bibliography. For the first time this new edition of The Language of Winnicott will include the most recently revised, chronological and alphabetical, bibliography of all the published works of D.W.Winnicott.
