In this essay Reeves looks at Winnicott’s development as a paediatrician and an analyst before and during World War Two. He discusses two of Winnicott’s groundbreaking theoretical papers on psychoanalysis written at this time (Primitive Emotional Development and The Observation of Infants in a Set Situation), his fame as a BBC broadcaster speaking to parents about the effects of evacuation on them and their children, his experience of the scientific controversies within the British Psychoanalytical Society at this time, his work in the Oxfordshire Q Camps for evacuated young people, and the beginnings of his distinctive contribution to metapyschological theories in psychoanalysis.
