Exploring Research Seminars: “Playing at Creating Reality”

The Exploring Research Seminars from the Wellcome Collection begins tomorrow evening with Robert Ades, Assistant Editor of The Collected Works of Donald Winnicott, the pediatrician and psychoanalyst. This talk will explore the relationship between playing and health through Winnicott’s compelling accounts of the origins of creativity in a baby’s first experiences.

During his illustrious career Winnicott worked with an estimated 60,000 mother-infant couples. He was the creator of the squiggle game, a therapeutic exchange in which the doctor and child take it in turns to modify a squiggle drawing. Winnicott’s theories of child development have become established across the world.

After the talk, you’ll have the opportunity to look at some key documents from the archives and ask questions.

The talk will start promptly at 17.30 in the Viewing Room, Wellcome Collection, 183 Euston Road.
