Book Description:

'This book is a rare example of well metabolised theory offered to the reader in easily palatable form. Formulation of Winnicott's concepts is clear, concise and historically contextualised, and his ideas about the intricacy of what transpires in primary relationships is illustrated by (suitably disguised) clinical snippets, and infant observation material. Unusually, at least four perspectives are presented in each chapter - baby's and mother's, and in parallel - psychotherapist's and patient's. The author read critically, and in keeping with Winnicott's wariness of sentimentality, counterbalances 'good enough' with deficits, both environmental and in Winnicott's theorising.'- Professor Joan Raphael-Leff, Leader, Academic Faculty for Psychoanalytic Research, UCL/Anna Freud Centre, London
