VISINTIN, Carlos Del Negro; GALLO-BELLUZZO, Sueli Regina; AMBROSIO, Fabiana Follador e  and  AIELLO-VAISBERG, Tânia Maria José. Infant care in winnicottian thought in the light of Concrete Psychoanalytic Psychology. Vínculo [online]. 2022, vol.19, n.1, pp.04-13. ISSN 1806-2490.

The aim of this article is to demonstrate and debate, in the light of concrete psychoanalytic psychology, a current contradiction in winnicottian thought expressed by the coexistence of two visions over infant care and motherhood. The reflections on the matter are shown in three sections. Firstly, concrete psychoanalytic psychology as a theoretical framework is set. Secondly, explanation and details on the contradiction of winnicottian thinking about infant care and motherhood are discussed. Thirdly, the articulation on a view of a winnicottian’s text from the point of view of concrete psychoanalytical psychology placing it as convergent with Lukács's ontology of social being is presented. Finally, the possibility of psychoanalytical knowledge being put at the service of initiatives in favor of social transformations seeking to overcome essentialist views on motherhood is indicated.

Keywords : child care; motherhood; concrete psychoanalytic psychology; D. W. Winnicott.
