WSPP Presents Playing and Learning with Winnicott
Friday, February 21, 2014, 11:30am-2:30pm
Presenter: Mildred Goldstone, PhD
This seminar will focus on Winnicott as a person, a theorist and a healer. Winnicott’s ideas enrich our understanding on many fronts. Not only do they illuminate aspects of our clinical work, but also our family life, our children’s experience, and our own childhoods. We will cover his major contributions, such as his research about the mother/infant dyad; his concepts of the good-enough mother, the holding environment, and the transitional object; his understanding of the infant’s developing sense of self, the capacity for concern, and the origins of creativity; his emphasis on play, on the true and false selves, and the importance of feeling real.
