Perhaps nowhere in psychoanalytic lore has the relationship of a writer’s life history, personal analysis, and scholarly contributions been so fascinatingly delineated as in the work on schizoid phenomena by Harry Guntrip. The remarkable story of Guntrip’s life history and personal analytic work with both Fairbairn and Winnicott helps us to more deeply appreciate his essential contributions to understanding schizoid components of personality. This three-session seminar will review Guntrip’s personal saga and survey his key papers, which remain a vital resource for recognizing, framing, and working with manifestations of schizoid conflicts commonly encountered in clinical practice.

The attendee will learn about Guntrip’s personal analysis with Wnnicott and understand how he drew from his work in formulating his theory of schizoid personality.

The attendee will be able to recognize manifestations of both fortress and return to the womb fantasies, and their special significance within Guntrip’s model of schizoid psychopathology
