Re-experiencing Winnicott's environmental mother: Implications for art psychotherapy of anti-social youth in special education
Journal/Book: Art Psychotherapy. 1979; 6: 95-102.
Abstract: Reviews D. W. Winnicott's (1958) theoretical concepts of transitional objects, primary illusion, and the capacity to be alone within the context of their application to treatment of antisocial children. A clinical plan of intervention is proposed that draws from both Winnicott's concepts and other contemporary clinical approaches that use creative art and music as modalities in working with antisocial children in a special education setting. Case studies of Puerto Rican male adolescents are discussed from a perspective utilizing these concepts. (7 ref)
