Winnicott and the British Independent Group, an all-day conference at Shutters on the Beach in Santa Monica on Saturday, October 28, 2017

The Independent Group in British Psychoanalysis—most notably Winnicott, Khan, Milner, Rycroft, and Laing—pioneered a unique and unprecedented approach to psychoanalytic theory and practice. Adam Phillips, identifying himself as a member and heir to the Independent Group, explores the various dimensions of the Independent Group’s approaches, while engaging with the controversies generated by them in the development of psychoanalysis. This conference concentrates on how the extraordinary range of Independent Group writing might be applicable to today’s clinical practice. There will be close attention to Winnicott’s seminal book, Playing and Reality.

The afternoon program, A Discussion on Winnicott, features great panelists including Lynda Chassler, PhD, Van DeGolia, MD, Jeffrey Prager, PhD, and Leigh Tobias, PhD as they and Adam Phillips focus on Winnicott’s Playing and Reality, Phillips’ Winnicott, and Phillips’ paper, “Winnicott’s Magic: ‘Playing and Reality’ and Reality.”
