In this talk to the Paediatric Section of the Royal Society of Medicine, Winnicott explains why it is important that doctors and nurses understand that they should not interfere with the establishment of the interpersonal relationships of the baby and mother. Holding and handling, object relating and the management of excretory processes are among his topics, all from the perspective of his role both as a doctor and a psychoanalyst.
