"Bowlby and Winnicott''s students give us new perspectives in a lively, authentic and scholarly picture of these important figures, whose influence and major contributions to many fields is immense. I welcome this informative, entertaining and thought-provoking book and I hope that it will be widely read." --Dr. Mario Marrone

John Bowlby and Donald Winnicott were two of the most notable twentieth century pioneers in the application of psychoanalysis to child development and family studies. A series of essays, written by former students of both men, provides insight into the way they approached their work, in addition to novel and clarifying commentaries on their ideas.
The book covers such subjects as the problems of antisocial children, separation, loss, and grief. It pays attention to the social context and dimension of Bowlby and Winnicott''s work and includes a novel examination of their contributions to the 1945 Curtis Committee''s deliberations leading to the landmark 1948 Children''s Act in Great Britain. Their different personalities and scientific attitudes are brought out in a lively and anecdotal way. The book ends with an extensive bibliography that links their own individual work not only to each other, but also to the many and varied strands of research and reflection that owe their origin to D.W. Winnicott and John Bowlby.

About the Author

Bruce Hauptmann is a child, adolescent and family psychiatrist in private practice in Cambridge, MA. In 1974, shortly after his return from England where he studied with Winnicott and Bowlby at the Tavistock Clinic, he wrote the proposals for grants that established the Community Therapeutic Day School. The school serves young children with serious psychiatric and neurological disorders and disabilities. He also maintains an active interest in cross-cultural child rearing, and has spent time studying Inuit children in Eastern Arctic communities.
