The Collected Works comprise eleven volumes of previously published and new texts and a selection of letters, presented in chronological order following either the date of delivery, writing, or first publication, and an accompanying volume of end material. Some undateable items have been grouped together as the final part of Volume 9. For more information on the structure and organisation of the Collected Works, see the Note in Volume 12.

This entire collection is also available online together with many of Winnicott’s original audio recordings and an introduction to his collection of broadcasts to parents by journalist and author Anne Karpf. at www.oxfordclinicalpsych.com/winnicott/.

In compiling these collected works, the editors made all reasonable efforts to preserve Winnicott’s original writings and publications with minimal editorial intervention. For this reason, some points of style, such as citation format, figure numbering, and spelling vary from piece to piece. For the convenience of the reader, figure numbers have been added in instances where the original figures were unnumbered. All editorial notes are marked with lowercase roman numerals and, in the print edition, appear as footnotes. Winnicott’s own notes are marked with Arabic numerals and appear as endnotes. Editorial interpolations in the original text and notes appear in square brackets. Cross-references to works appearing elsewhere in the Collected Works have been added to aid the reader. These references are indicated by an abbreviation that includes volume, part, and chapter numbers (e.g., “CW 2:7:8” for Volume 2, Part 7, Chapter 8). Although the Collected Works is as complete as possible a collection of Winnicott’s work, it does not include works which remain inaccessible or which are protected by confidentiality restrictions.
