This essay deals with psycho analysis when it is regarded as research and not as therapy of immediate sociological value. Winnicott judges that society may well be grateful one day for the unhurried work of the psycho analysis of delinquents. He stresses that there is a mixture of love, fear, hate and guilt in any child’s relation to his parents and that plain observation in the home seldom provides answers to the delinquent child’s problems.
