WSPP: Playing and Learning with Winnicott

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.

Presenter: Dr. Mildred Goldstone is a licensed psychologist with a clinical psychology practice in Washington, DC. In her practice, she provides individual, group, family and couple psychotherapy, hypnosis, consultation, and clinical supervision. Her orientations include psychoanalytic, Bowen’s Family Systems, Ericksonian hypnotherapy and existential therapy. She has studied Object Relations Theory and practice for 30 years, specializing in the work of the British Object Relations School, including the teachings of Klein, Fairbairn, Guntrip, Winnicott, Bion and Balint. During this time she has taught seminars for WSPP and WPSP, focused on Klein, Fairbairn, Guntrip and Winnicott. A particular area of focus has been D.W. Winnicott, one of the “Independents” in the British psychoanalytic Society, who maintained ongoing ties with both Anna Freud and Melanie Klein and their followers.
