This is a collection of notes, often highly abbreviated, in which Winnicott puts down various points related to adolescent development in both the healthy and psychologically ill child. He expresses his belief that psychological interventions and assistance do not aim to cure adolescents but instead to ‘see them through’, giving every child the opportunity to find his or her own solution through internal work and reality testing.
