    schema:description "Of the work included, which covers over forty years of his writing, only three essays have previously been published in book form. Ranging from his extraordinarily observant case histories to landmark theoretical advances, Thinking About Children covers issues of enduring interest such as autism, adoption, early infant development, psychosomatic problems, and family relationships. Winnicott's empathy and wit burst through in each chapter, while his deep understanding of the unity of mother and baby, of mind and body, prefigures some of the newest concepts in medicine and psychology. A comprehensive bibliography of all Winnicott's writings, together with a helpful introductory analysis of the place of individual concepts in the development of his thought, make this book indispensable to those who know Winnicott's work and an ideal introduction to those who have not experienced the astonishing clarity and depth of his thought."@en ;
