In this paper, Winnicott emphasises the importance of the study of the skin in relation to emotional disorder. Winnicott hopes to show that not only the physiology but also the psychology of the living person must be studied if one is to understand the behaviour of the skin in given circumstances. He indicates some reasons why the psychology of the owner of the skin tends to be neglected and makes tentative suggestions as to the classification of skin changes related to feelings.
