In this statement, Winnicott describes how child psychiatry has been not only his specialist activity, but also a second love; the first being physical paediatrics. He gives several reasons for having a somewhat peculiar view of child psychiatry, focussing on the interplay throughout his life between child psychiatry and psychoanalysis. He also describes his sense of guilt, that psychoanalysis helped him to lose, in part, over having escaped the death that eclipsed the careers of so many of his friends in the First World War.
