Selma Fraiberg, James Robertson and Clare Winnicott each courageously shared their learnings from direct social work practice with the larger community.  Fraiberg, best known for her classic volume “The Magic Years”, pioneered groundbreaking work with blind infants and infant-mother psychotherapy.  Robertson’s films, including “A Two Year Old Goes to the Hospital”, highlighted the importance of parent-child attachment and transformed hospital pediatrics around the world.  And Clare Winnicott, after working with wartime evacuees, became one of the leaders in Britain’s child welfare services and helped a generation of social workers understand the emotional world of children. In this presentation, the stories and central lessons of all three social workers will be shared, augmented by film excepts and taped interviews.
