S. H. Hodge had responded to Winnicott’s letter to The Times on punishment and crime. Winnicott, in his response, states again that punishment has nothing to do with helping the criminal, who should really be recognized and treated as ill. He emphasises that more knowledge and facilities for successful treatment of criminals are needed.
