In this letter, Winnicott says that Klein herself does not omit the work of Freud, although some of her group give that impression, which he feels is unfortunate. He states his belief that it is the job of medically qualified analysts to tackle the analyses of psychotics, but that nonmedical analysts cannot avoid psychotic phases in character analyses where there is no obvious psychotic label. He says that he finds himself labeled as only concerned with regression.
