Reading Winnicott (1) Primitive Emotional Development

Friday, 15 March 2019 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm

A small study group facilitated by Rob Abbott

Three lunchtime reading discussion sessions focussing on the work of Donald Winnicott. In each session we will focus on one seminal paper from Winnicott. I can send you a copy of the paper which you will need to read before the session.

Please bring along a copy of the paper and, if you wish, some lunch and a drink.

The small charge for each session is for room hire and ticket admin via Eventbrite. All three events are being held in the upstairs rooms of the Friends’ Meeting House, Chichester.

Sessssion 1: Primitive Emotional Development

Adam Phillips describes this as a “watershed paper” laying the ground for much of the theory that Winnicott developed later in his career.  In the paper Winnicott looks at early development and suggests that there are three important processes which he calls: integration, personalization and realization.
