    1. Thoroughly enjoyable read. Very unique insight into the psychoanalytical process, and Winnicott's skill is very impressive. Unfortunately, Piggle's age makes it very difficult to separate the natural effect of Piggle "growing up," from the impact of the analysis itself. Winnicott himself acknowledges this, as he tells her parents about half way in, that Piggle is dealing with issues perhaps most children go through, and is "different" only in that she is more visibly expressive of the internal c [...]

    2. I am giving this book a 3, simply because I don’t know what to make of it. It’s a description of 16 psychotherapeutic/psychoanalytic sessions of Gabrielle, nicknamed The Piggle, with the pioneering child psychiatrist Donald W. Winnicott. The sixteen sessions are spread out between 1964, when Gabrielle is 2 years old, and 1966, when she is 5 years old. Her parents, who seem to know D.W.W. personally, ask him to see their daughter, who has developed nightmares and strange anxieties since the b [...]

    3. Este texto es un ejemplo extraordinario de la clínica de Winnicott, es muy interesante por qué camino se llega a la clínica con niños, no es igual llegar desde el análisis de adultos o desde la consulta privada , con Winnicott es muy clara la huella que deja el trabajo clínico en instituciones, no está especialmente interesado en el análisis prolongado, le interesa cuanto es lo " menos" que necesita el paciente para poder seguir con su desarrollo por una parte y por otra parte contesta l [...]

    4. Siempre me ha llamado la atención la psicología y en particular el psicoanálisis, sin embargo mientras más contacto tengo con esta especialidad más me siento confundido y sorprendido por la creatividad e ingenio que pueden tener algunos de los representantes de ciertas escuelas de la psicología. Este libro es un ejemplo perfecto de aquellos personajes que encuentran interpretaciones impensables para muchas otras personas que ignoramos las bases del psicoanálisis. Sin embargo, creo que muc [...]

    5. One of the great therapeutic books - which was introduced to my notice by Ethan Taubes's guardian in a NYRB review from the 70s called "A Good Doctor." The Piggle is a 26-month-old little girl, Gabrielle, who decides that she would like to be psychoanalyzed by Dr. Winnicott. She lives some distance from London, and their sessions - there are 16 of them, described individually - take place at long intervals, sometimes achingly long, and the audience wants to cry out as at a melodrama. But it all [...]

    6. This is a psuedo-transcription of Winnicott's analysis of a little girl whose nickname is the Piggle. He's one of the fathers of child psychology, and it really is amazing to watch him talk to her - he's very comfortable using (and comprehending!) the mixed-up language that she uses to express her hurt, despair and confusion. Also, since it's a case study rather than a tome of theory, you learn a lot without having to wade through a lot.However, it's also very sad to read about a depressed littl [...]

    7. In this book, the psychoanalyst D.W. Winnicott provides a highly detailed account of his "on demand" treatment" of a girl from the ages of two to five. She had been deeply disturbed by the birth of a younger sister, which resulted in delusions and nightmares. In addition to its astonishing detail, what makes the account memorable is Winnicott's empathy, insight (based on many years of experience), and imagination in his interactions with this very small child.

    8. I was curious about Winnicott after reading Are You My Mother?, so I went ahead and checked this one out. I have very little background in psychology/psychoanalysis, but I found it easy to follow and at least of some interest.

    9. First-person account of a very young child's therapy with renowned, pioneering child psychiatrist D.W. Winnicott. Interesting, if somewhat obscure to the layman; how you'll react probably depends largely on how receptive you are to traditionally Freudian ideas of sexuality and the unconscious.

    10. The Piggle is an account of the attendance of the patient Winnicott, Gabrielle, who was seen as the demand. In six years, she only made ​​six or eight sessions with Winnicott.
