In this talk to staff of a local council Children’s Department, Winnicott explains why, in the psychoanalytic process, time is a major factor in treatment and gives instances from his clinical work to support this. Unconscious processes, which are timeless, are addressed in analysis; these then become better integrated over time with conscious functioning, which is time based, and the patient may over many years begin to develop and improve his life.
