-The Winnicott Clinic of Psychotherapy was founded in 1969 and since 2000 has concentrated on the wider dissemination of the work and ideas of Dr Donald W. Winnicott (1896-1971), the distinguished English paediatrician, child psychiatrist and psychoanalyst. To that end, it has established the Winnicott Clinic Senior Research Fellowship in Psychotherapy and the Donald Winnicott Memorial Lecture, an annual event designed for a wide audience of professionals and others involved with children. These lectures focus upon a specific topic, arising from Winnicott's life and ideas, in terms of relevance for twenty-first century living.- -- Eric Koops, LVO, Chairman of the Trustees, The Winnicott Clinic of Psychotherapy

Donald Winnicott and Dr John Bowlby are two of the greatest influences in the field of child analysis and therapy, whose concepts continue to inspire all those working with children today. This volume, part of a series based on the annual Donald Winnicott Memorial Lecture, is presented by Sir Richard Bowlby, followed by a paper from Pearl King. Although they both acknowledge the enormous debt child and adolescent analysis and therapy owe to these two men, the presenters also take time to recollect and reflect upon Winnicott and Bowlby as they personally knew them, giving a fascinating insight into the lives and characters of two of the greats in the field of child mental health.
In addition to the paper given by Sir Richard Bowlby, the volume includes a Foreword by Eric Koops, an Introduction by Brett Kahr and the paper -Recollections of Donald Winnicott and John Bowlby- by Pearl King.
