Example text

The term first appeared in 1956 in ‘Primary maternal pre-occupation’, a response to a symposium on pre-oedipal development, published in The Psychoanalytic Study of the Child (A Freud 1954: 16–71). Anna Freud had discussed the place of the drives from birth, developing her father’s concept of ‘anaclitic’ relating. Winnicott emphasizes her use of the term ‘need’ rather than desire and questions whether frustration and satisfaction are suitable terms in relation to unmet needs. For him this situation leads to ‘a distortion of development’ (Winnicott 1956c: 301) where the infant faces the most primitive anxieties of annihilation in circumstances which rupture the possibility of establishing the basis for a strong ego.

Playing involves a relation with, and a care of, the self. It is a form of living well (Winnicott 1971c: 50). The essential components of the Winnicottian account are creativity, play as voluntary, primary, related to a particular condition of the mind, to the self, and to the relations between them. Play happens in the intermediate area of experience and the possibility of its existence ‘there’; the possibility of someone being able to play there (and therefore elsewhere) grows out of the potential space between Winnicott in his time 17 child and mother which emerges ‘when experience has produced in the child a high degree of confidence in the mother that she will not fail to be there if suddenly needed’ (Winnicott 1967a: 36).
