The Language of Winnicott 2nd Edition

By Jan Abram

Jan Abram’s lexicon - The Language of Winnicott - has proved to be the definitive comprehensive guide to Winnicott’s thought since it was first published in 1996, Winnicott’s Centenary Year. The twenty-two entries represent the major conceptualizations in Winnicott’s theories and take the reader on a journey through his writings that span from 1931 – 71. Thus the volume is an anthology of the entirety of Winnicott’s writings.

This new edition, with a new bibliography by Knud Hjulmud, expands on each original entry predicated on Abram’s research discoveries, including archival material, over the past decade.
