Throughout his writing, DW Winnicott encouraged us to listen for the spontaneous gestures that emerge from within our patients’ creative, authentic core. Of course a great variety of traumas, deficiencies, and other environmental failures have all too often created obstructions to our patient’s ability to act from a place of disencumbered self expression. In this course we will anchor our listening to student case material in Winnicott’s ideas. His writings show a deep respect for the very private, imaginative core of the individual as well as the protective function of the false self. Making use of these concepts, we will work to attune our listening to the very heart of where the patient truly lives.
