Winnicott’s review of Michael Balint’s The Doctor, His Patient and the Illness discusses Balint’s work in the Tavistock Clinic as pertaining to general practice and as a good medium for the spread of psychotherapy along psycho-analytic lines. Winnicott notes that it is possible that analysts are not well aware of the tremendous number of patients who are dealt with successfully by general practitioners without being in analysis at all.
