In this talk to the McLean Hospital in Belmont, Massachusetts, on the opening of new facilities for the care of psychiatrically ill adolescents, Winnicott describes some characteristics of normal adolescence and their relationship to the symptomatology of psychiatrically ill children at the age of puberty. A case is given that illustrates some of the difficulties that belong to the management of patients of this age group. Winnicott sees intensive psychotherapy as working alongside psychiatric care. The topics of maturation, pathology, diagnosis and management are covered.
