Attachment, Play, and Authenticity is an integration of the major conceptual elements of Winnicott's theorizing on the developmental process with the uniquely inventive and evocative nature of his work as a child and adult psychoanalyst. More than 25 of his most important theoretical and clinical works are closely analyzed and presented so that the enormous breadth of his clinical and theoretical contributions to child and adult psychology and psychotherapy can be demonstrated.
