Reviews and Endorsements

‘Winnicott’s gift was his ability to provide us with a psychoanalysis that appreciates the specialness of the ordinary without sentimentalising or disregarding complexity. The papers in this book demonstrate how his ideas integrate the physical, personal, interpersonal and cultural realms. In capturing what can make or break the emergence of life as a ‘good-enough’ experience, they illustrate how his work continues to guide and enliven practice and research, providing a framework that also harnesses the power of spontaneity. This book exemplifies how Winnicott’s gift will continue to be a present for the future.’
––Professor Adrian Sutton, director of the Squiggle Foundation
