Treatment of Aggression: New Insight on Winnicott’s Theories
Jan Abram, Eminent Psychoanalyst & Winnicott Scholar

In 1968, Donald Winnicott presented his paper “The use of an object” to the then New York Psychoanalytic Society. Winnicott continued to develop his theories on aggression and survival of the object until his death in 1971. In the Winnicott archives in London, a set of unpublished notes stand as Winnicott’s final statement on his theory of aggression. Stimulated by this archival discovery, Jan Abram examines these notes in light of the theoretical advances of Winnicott’s late writings.

Abram will be joined by NYPSI members Nasir Ilahi, who will Chair the discussion and introduce Abram, and Gail Reed and Susan Sherkow as discussants. Together, they will explore Abram’s clinical case study illustrating her interpretation of Winnicott’s “survival of the object”.

Jan Abram is a psychoanalyst in private practice in London. She is a Fellow of the British Psychoanalytical Society and Visiting Professor at the Centre for Psychoanalytic Studies, University of Essex. She is a member of the Editorial Board of the International Journal of Psychoanalysis and also holds honorary positions in the Psychoanalysis Unit at University College London.

Between 1989 and 2000 Jan Abram worked for the Squiggle Foundation (an organization dedicated to the dissemination of Donald Winnicott’s work) as a teacher/lecturer and as director (1996-2000). During this time she published her first book – Psychotherapy Trainings: a guide (1992). Emerging out of the many courses and workshops she convened on the work of Winnicott, in the UK and abroad, she published her second book The Language of Winnicott: a dictionary of Winnicott’s use of words (1996). This book was awarded Outstanding Academic Book of the Year in 1997 by Choice Magazine. The second edition of The Language of Winnicott was published in 2007.

Abram is a member of the “Paris Group” – the Working Party for the Specificity of Psychoanalysis Today – of the European Psychoanalytic Federation. Her current research, linked with the Paris Group, involves a continuation of the themes related to psychic survival in clinical psychoanalysis associated with critiques and versions of the death instinct stemming from Freud’s later work, and its comparison with Winnicott’s theories of aggression and primary psychic creativity. She is most recently the editor of Donald Winnicott Today (Routledge, 2012).

Nasir Ilahi is Clinical Assistant Professor in Psychiatry, New York University Medical School and an Honorary Member of New York Psychoanalytic Society & Institute. He is also on the faculty of Institute of Psychoanalytic Education which is associated with New York University Medical School. A graduate and Fellow of the British Psychoanalytic Society, Ilahi is an Editorial Board Member of International Journal of Psychoanalysis and author and lecturer on clinical psychoanalysis.

Gail Reed is a Training and Supervisory Analyst, Training Institute of the Contemporary Freudian Society, the Berkshire Psychoanalytic Institute and NPAP. She is also an Honorary Member, New York Psychoanalytic Society & Institute. Her scholarly work includes being Associate Editor, Foreign Books, Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association and being on the Editorial Board, Psychoanalytic Quarterly. Reed is an author and lecturer on clinical psychoanalysis and is co-author/editor of the forthcoming Unrepresented States and the Construction of Meaning: Clinical and Theoretical Contributions (Karnac, 2012).

Susan Sherkow is a Supervising Analyst in the Child and Adolescent Division of NYPSI and a Training and Supervising Analyst at the Berkshire Psychoanalytic Institute. She is an Adjunct Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and at Mount Sinai College of Medicine. Dr. Sherkow has recently published a paper on the treatment of childhood ASD in the Psychoanalytic Inquiry.

Donald Winnicott Today

Book Launch & Discussion

Editor Jan Abram and contributors Lisa Farley, Dodi Goldman and Nellie Thompson will participate in a roundtable discussion. A book signing will follow.

Donald Winnicott Today (Routledge, 2012) provides a rare in-depth analysis of Winnicott’s original work, and highlights the specifics of his contribution to the concept of early psychic development which revolutionized the theory and practice of psychoanalysis.

This new book includes re-publications of selected Winnicott papers to set the scene for the themes and explorations in subsequent chapters. Donald Winnicott Today examines how Winnicott expanded Freud’s work, and how his discourse with Melanie Klein sharpened his thought and clinical innovations.

Drawing on her own extensive knowledge of Winnicott and the expertise of the distinguished contributors, editor Jan Abram shows us how Winnicott’s contribution constitutes a major psychoanalytic advance to the concept of subjectivity.

Students, academics and clinical professionals in the analytic community are encouraged to attend. Members of the general public are also welcome to attend.
