In this contribution to a symposium on the training for child psychiatry—a new specialty in medicine at this time—Winnicott proposes that doctors who have trained in paediatrics and psychoanalysis should also train as child psychiatrists. Becoming an adult psychiatrist who then trains in child psychiatry is not advisable because the trainee doctor will have missed the development of child physical and emotional health during its maturation.
