Over a period of several decades, Dr. D.W. Winnicott evolved a personal way of relating to and communicating with children, offering them a live professional setting in which to discover themselves. Here he presents a selection of these therapeutic consultations - seventeen case histories whose significance for child psychiatry is in the tradition of Freud's case histories of the treatment of neuroses in adults.

Dr. Winnicott believed that, in the right case, a full and free use of the first interview can yield rich rewards, and he claimed that the right cases for this are common. He hoped that, by presenting these case studies, he would introduce the reader to the exciting potential of his approach, which depends as much on selection (of therapist) as on training.

Dr. Winnicott's therapeutic consultations provide a fruitful feedback to psychoanalysis itself. This indeed was his purpose: to help to establish a creative dialogue between psychoanalysis and child psychiatry. -- from the publisher


A very rich source of child psychiatric material…The book as a whole illuminates so much of what Winnicott wrote before its composition that its publication could be seen as representing the culmination of his life's work.

James R. Hood, Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry

Winnicott is truly at his best…I cannot conceive of anyone reading these descriptions without being enriched in his understanding of his children, his parents, and indeed of himself.

Charles Rycroft, New York Review of Books
