In this address, Winnicott describes how a clinical link between infant development and psychiatric states is made, and he stresses the importance of cooperation and consultation between the paediatrician and the child psychiatrist. He emphasises the importance of the infant-mother relationship in developing a human being’s mental health and he is adamant in his belief that doctors and nurses should not interfere with this developing relationship.
