"Winnocott Goes Viral:

A Look at Early Relationships Through Viral Videos"

Presented by: 

Orit Weksler, LMFT

  • Friday, April 2, 2021
  • 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
  • Zoom Webinar
  • 2 CEUs

Course Description         

What makes our early experiences meaningful and useful? What helps us know ourselves and make sense of the world? Using viral videos from the early days of YouTube, we will attempt to answer these questions using Winnicott’s ideas about “The Full Experience”; “Personal Gestures”; “A Holding Environment” and Transitional Space”. We will think about attachment, metallization, play and discuss ideas about rhythm, knowledge and the importance of pausing in an interactive and fun training.

Learning Objectives 

1. Know about Winnicott's concepts of "The full experience", "Transitional space", "Holding environment".

2. Understand the relationship between "rhythm", "knowledge" and "pause" in creating a transitional space that allows for growth and creativity.

3. Experience a "holding environment" in the presentation itself and reflect on how to use this experience in their clinical work.
