TIC2-1 – Trauma Informed Care

INTRODUCTION TO THE WORK OF DONALD WINNICOTT

Donald Winnicott lived from 1896 to 1971 and was an extremely influential child psychoanalyst. He and other psychologists working during this time were responsible for the understanding we now have that the first few years of life are vital in laying the foundations for future psychological and emotional health.

Winnicott did much of his work during World War Two, when thousands of children were separated from their parents for long periods, after being evacuated from the cities for their own safety. Winnicott studied the effects of this separation on the children and was able to show how important continuity in both the physical and personal environment is, for a child to grow optimally and have the best chance of healthy development. His ideas and work are laid out in the many books and papers he wrote, some of which are listed as recommended reading at the end of the handout.

INTRODUCTION TO THE WORK OF JOHN BOWLBY

John Bowlby worked in the 1960’s and 70’s and was a colleague of Winnicott’s. He is famous for his work on attachment. He wrote a number of books on this topic which have now been printed together in a book called The Secure Base, listed at the end of this handout. His ideas have influenced present day ideas about child care and children going into hospital.

THE WORK OF MARGARET MAHLER

Margaret Mahler worked as a psychoanalyst in the United States in the 1970’s.

She set up a laboratory to observe children from birth to five years old with their primary carers. Through these observations Mahler was able to understand the stages of emotional development that a child goes through. She was also able to describe the behaviours seen at each stage.
Mahler wrote this work up in a book called the Psychological Birth of the Human Infant, published in 1975. This book describes the stages from biological birth or when the baby is born, through to the child’s ‘psychological birth’. This is the point the child has an individual identity of its own. This usually happens around three and a half years old.

VALERIE SINASON

Valerie Sinason was a pioneer in working with people with learning disabilities using psychotherapy. She started out her career as an English teacher but later trained as a Psychotherapist. She worked at the Tavistock Clinic in London which is a national centre for psychotherapy.

In the 80’s and early 90’s, Sinason formed a group with some of her colleagues. They began using psychotherapy with people with learning disabilities. The group supported and supervised each other in this work. They began to see some very positive changes in the people they worked with.

SIGMUND FREUD

Sigmund Freud, is often called the “father of psychoanalysis”. He lived from 1856 to 1939. He worked mainly with adults and was the first person to really try and understand and analyse why human beings behave the way we do. His discoveries and ideas have completely changed the way we view ourselves and our relationships with others.

MELANIE KLEIN

Melanie Klein lived from 1856 to 1939. She was inspired by the ideas of Freud and did much of her work with children using toys and observing how they played with them.

From her work Klein realised that emotional development begins much earlier than Freud thought, starting even before we are born. Klein believed that the baby is born with what she called a “murderous rage”, probably due to the unpleasant and traumatic experience of being born.

WILFRED BION

Bion was an American psychologist who did a lot of work with veterans from the first and second world wars. He is famous for the work he did with groups of soldiers which has greatly increased our understanding of groups.

However in this handout we are most interested in the work he did with people who had had suffered very traumatic experiences in the wars. These people were suffering from what at the time was called ‘Shell Shock’. We now know this as ‘Post Traumatic Stress Disorder’. He noticed that when a person had been severely traumatised their personality had become ‘disintegrated’. It was almost as if the person’s personality had become ‘lost’.

DAVID MALAN

David Malan was a one of a later generation of psychotherapists. In 1979 he wrote a book called The Science of Psychodynamics. In this book he brought together all the ideas of psychodynamic working that had been developed by earlier psychotherapists.

In this book he also wrote about what happens in one to one therapy and developed a model that can be used to measure the effectiveness of therapy.
