Chapter Five: Donald Woods Winnicott

Markman Reubins, Beatriz Karnac Books ePub


Donald Woods Winnicott was born in Plymouth, England, on 7 April 1896. He died in London, England, on 28 January 1971, when he was seventy-five years old. In the last years of his life, he suffered from a lung and heart condition but continued working.

Donald was the younger child of three, he had two older sisters. His father was a successful merchant who became the mayor of Plymouth. Winnicott's mother died in 1925 when he was twenty-nine years old. His mother was described as a vivacious and highly intelligent woman with good judgement and a sense of humour.

Donald Winnicott's first marriage ended in divorce. The couple did not have children. Winnicott met his second wife, Clare Britton, a psychiatric social worker, when he was working at the Evacuation Project. They were married in 1951, and they had an excellent marriage. They always interacted with love and companionship, sharing work and ideas, but not children.

He attended medical school in Cambridge, England, and in 1918, at the end of the First World War, he finished his medical training at St Bartholomew Hospital in London. In 1920, he qualified as a paediatrician. When he was twenty-three, he became familiar with Freud's ideas. In 1923, Winnicott began his own psychoanalytic treatment with James Strachey (Freud's translator of the Standard Edition), which lasted ten years.

2. Active Directory Fundamentals

Desmond, Brian O'Reilly Media ePub

This chapter aims to bring you up to speed on the basic concepts and terminology used with Active Directory. It is important to understand each component of Active Directory before embarking on a design, or your design may leave out a critical element.

Data stored within Active Directory is presented to the user in a hierarchical fashion similar to the way data is stored in a filesystem. Each entry is referred to as an object. At the structural level, there are two types of objects: containers and non-containers, which are also known as leaf nodes. One or more containers branch off in a hierarchical fashion from a root container. Each container may contain leaf nodes or other containers. As the name implies, however, a leaf node may not contain any other objects.

Although the data in Active Directory is presented hierarchically, it is actually stored in flat database rows and columns. The Directory Information Tree (DIT) file is an Extensible Storage Engine (ESE) database file. This answers the question Does Active Directory use JET or ESE Database technology? ESE is a JET technology.

CHAPTER TWO: Fundamentals of clinical practice: Freud’s clinical propositions

Ahmed Fayek Karnac Books ePub

The cathartic theory, even in its expanded and elaborate form did not have the guidelines of practice. It took Freud almost two decades to address the guidelines of clinical practice, which were prompted by strictly using free association. Despite that, in all that time, clinical practice was one or another form of free association and interpretation, and in spite of the existence of Freud’s “recommendations” for practice, we had little knowledge of how or what to do in an analysis. Analysts were practising without a clinical theory and formulating their findings in the terminology of a theory; they were no longer practising. It is important to note that Freud used his discoveries in the dualities of the manifest/ latent and explicit/implicit in the normal psychical phenomena (dreams, etc.) to understand the dualities of the Ucs./Cs., as they were manifested in the associations of his patients. His intuitions in that regard were complemented by similar intuitions of his pioneering colleagues. Although they were captives of the cathartic theory they were building—almost unintentionally—a real theory of psychoanalysis. Therefore, the incompatibility of theory and practice— at that time—was unnoticeable, even as the “great” theory of psychoanalysis was in the process of being configured.

la fin de la guerre, les expressionnistes allemands, comme le reste de la population, devaient accepter le traumatisme et le bouleversement des années précédentes. Mais pour ceux qui avaient placé d’ardents espoirs sur le triomphe de l’expressionnisme dans

la vie et dans l’art, c’était une période de doute de soi et de questionnement intense, particulièrement angoissante. Globalement parlant, on pouvait discerner deux réactions – ou stratégies d’affrontement – courantes. Pour l’une, il s’agissait d’une démarche d’immersion toujours plus profonde dans ce qu’Eckart von Sydow appelait en 1920 un « mysticisme primitif ». Des visions transcendantales d’une nouvelle utopie pure et « enfantine », renaissant, tel le phénix, de l’ordure et de la destruction, continuaient de jaillir de l’imagination d’expressionnistes comme Bruno Taut, Wenzel Hablik, Hermann Finsterlin,

Johannes Itten du Bauhaus, et d’autres architectes et artistes « visionnaires ». Sous un jour différent, le désir d’une sorte d’apothéose, transportant l’artiste créatif des affres de la métropole terre à terre vers un royaume supérieur, cosmique, prit forme dans un tableau réalisé en 1925 par Felixmüller (p.122).

4. Music and Video

David Pogue O'Reilly Media ePub

Of the iPhone's Big Three talentsphone, Internet, and iPodits iPoddishness may be the most successful. This function, after all, is the only one that doesn't require the participation of AT&T and its network. It works even on planes and in subways. And it's the iPhone function that gets the most impressive battery life (almost 24 hours of music playback).

This chapter assumes that you've already loaded some music or video onto your iPhone, as described in Chapter13.

To enter iPod Land, press the Home button, and then tap the orange iPod icon at the lower-right corner of the screen.

The iPod program begins with listslots of lists. The first four icons at the bottom of the screen represent your starter lists, as follows:

Playlists. A playlist is a group of songs that you've placed together, in a sequence that makes sense to you. One might consist of party tunes; another might hold romantic dinnertime music; a third might be drum-heavy workout cuts.

You create playlists in the iTunes software, as described on Playlists. After you sync the iPhone with your computer, the playlists appear here.
