This book presents the life and work of one of the leading British social workers of the 20th century. The wife of Donald Winnicott, an analyst of Melanie Klein, a wartime innovator in helping evacuated children, a teacher and mentor to a generation of British social workers and a gifted psychoanalyst, Clare Winnicott's life encompassed a remarkable richness of relationships and accomplishments. As well as documenting Clare Winnicott's life and career, this book also contains valuable and pragmatic career strategies for assisting parents and other care-givers in the difficult challenge of creating and sustaining facilitating environments for troubled children."[Clare Winnicott] showed that social workers who spent time with and who could relate with, play with, and talk with children could enable them to deal with their difficulties. Joel Kanter should be thanked for so carefully and clearly bringing Clare Winnicott back to the notice of the world of social work." -- Dr Bob Holman, Visiting Professor in Social Policy at the Universities of Glasgow and Swansea"Joel Kanter has edited for us mental health professionals a most important and timely book. Its focus is on the thinking and practice of Clare, whose original profession was social work, and the story of the mutual influences between her and Donald Winnicott, the medical analyst who became her husband. It is as though Clare and Donald began a dialogue that has grown in volume and intensity, and out of which both professions may broaden and deepen in knowledge and therapeutic competence." -- Jean Sanville, Ph.D., Training Analyst, Los Angeles Institute and Society for Psychoanalytic Studies; Founding Dean, California Institute for Clinical Social Work"Joel Kanter has woven together so many diverse events, ideas, tasks, achievements that are all part of Clare's life, and at the same time he has managed to depict the essential inter-relationship between Clare and Donald which kept the importance of playing and enjoying each other's company as the context within which the struggles of their lives took place. I am grateful to him." -- Pearl King
