The third book in the Winnicott Clinic Lecture Series contains a lecture from Professor Andre Green on Winnicott's theory on play. He discusses Winnicott's view on the importance of play and then moves on to presenting his own, somewhat contradictory, view on it. Professor Green provides an innovative and provocative perspective on the subject, inviting people to think independently rather than accepting theories already laid out for them.

Reviews and Endorsements

'The Winnicott Clinic of Psychotherapy was founded in 1969 and since 2000 has concentrated on the wider dissemination of the work and ideas of Dr Donald W. Winnicott (1896-1971), the distinguished English paediatrician, child psychiatrist and psychoanalyst.

'To that end, it has established the Winnicott Clinic Senior Research Fellowship in Psychotherapy and the Donald Winnicott Memorial Lecture, an annual event designed for a wide audience of professionals and others involved with children. These lectures focus upon a specific topic, arising from Winnicott’s life and ideas, in terms of relevance for twenty-first century living.'
- Eric Koops, LVO Chairman of the Trustees, The Winnicott Clinic of Psychotherapy
