  • Abstract  

    Donald Woods Winnicott was an English Paediatrician and a Psychoanalyst who contributed to the field of Object Relations Theory and Developmental Psychology.Winnicott described himself as a disturbed adolescent, reacting against his own self-restraining "goodness" trying to assuage the dark moods of his mother, which were the seeds of self-awareness and became the basis of his interest in working with troubled young people. 1 Winnicott’s focus highlighted the very start of life as his psychoanalytic clinical findings illuminated the significance of the parental role in early object relations. 4 Thus, at the core of Winnicott's contributions are the Parent-Infant Relationship, 4 True Self And False Self and Play And Reality.
