Talking to Parents
The respected child psychologist presents a collection of insightful essays full of useful advice on how to understand the parent-infant process, offering liberating and reassuring guidance on helping children succeed.
"[Winnicott's] brilliant insights are based on a deep understanding of the parent-infant processes coupled with firm conviction that most parents want desperately to do well by their children."--T. Berry Brazelton, M.D.
"Here was a man who could be 'popular, ' completely accessible, without every ceasing to be profound; a man who ranged audaciously far and wide in the realms of thought, but who always came back to home base, the psychology of the child. . . . [His] ideas, too 'premature' to be fully understood in his lifetime, have proved crucial in the exciting coming together of psychoanalysis and developmental biology that is occurring today."--Oliver Sacks, M.D.
"Winnicott helped to bridge the gap for me between pediatrics and the dynamics of child development."--Benjamin Spock, M.D.
"The gentleman wrote powerfully, and with sensitivity, intelligence, and the fruits of many years of experience."--Burton White, Ph.D.
"What I find most enjoyable is [Winnicott's] enthusiastic, optimistic tone, his appreciation of a mother's natural talents, and the real pleasure he finds available to parents in rearing their young."--Marshall Klaus, M.D.
