Chapter 8 of Clinical Notes on Disorders of Childhood. In this chapter, Winnicott discusses the exclusion of the diagnosis of active heart disease. He states that a child with a normal life and a normal level of health enjoyment does not have active heart disease. Such children would, however, be badly treated by the misdiagnosis of active heart disease and a long treatment of rest and without play.
