In this review of Art Versus Illness, by Adrian Hill, Winnicott holds that ‘the main idea’ in this book ‘is that when ill people are not too ill they absolutely need help in the management of their souls, or inner worlds, or whatever you call it’ from art-based activity. The negative and positive aspects of the profession of Occupational Therapy are raised. On the whole Winnicott values this book and also values the already artistically inclined trainee for this area of help for those who are ill.
