Winnicott, in a lecture to trainee doctors, argues by means of several clinical examples for a link being made between physical health and emotional or psychological health of the child within the family. He chooses to eschew giving a précis of psychoanalytic theory in favour of interesting the doctors directly by means of his clinical cases, linking them to what they would come across in their daily medical experiences.
