Commencing Thursday July 18th from 9am to 10.15am (AEST – Sydney time) 2024 via Zoom

Steve Tuber says of his course “We’ll begin the course with a brief overview of Winnicott as a person and in time. We will then go forward with a review of several of his most central theoretical paradoxes, go on to review some of his special terminology and then read some of his major technique papers. We will review the clinical vignettes at the end of each chapter of my book: Attachment, Play and Authenticity: Winnicott in a Clinical Context (Rowman and Littlefield, 2019) as we integrate theory and practice in a Winnicottian way.
A respectful way to approach Winnicott’s work is to think dynamically, in the literal sense of the word. That is, to see his ideas as a presentation of paradoxes, never fully resolvable by words alone, yet capable of stirring us to find greater and deeper meanings to even the simplest of gestures and symbols. I’d like us to approach this course with paradox and dilemma solving/making as the frame of reference.  We will also use this course as didactic seminar simultaneously with clinical material, using both his work and our own, to supplement our review of his theoretical contributions. I look forward to meeting and working with you all.”
