MELLO, Débora Falleiros de  and  LIMA, Regina Aparecida Garcia de. Nursing care and the winnicott approach. Texto contexto - enferm. [online]. 2010, vol.19, n.3, pp.563-569. ISSN 0104-0707.

This study aimed to identify contributions of Winnicott's theoretical approach to nursing care. It is a reflexive study that highlights the concepts of holding, facilitating environment, and transitional space. It establishes interface with health care, relevant for nursing care comprehension. Nursing care is approached in the perspective of "good enough" practices, requiring the establishment of arenas for mutual contact, support, protection, and facilitating environment. Winnicott concepts add new values to nursing care, enabling a conceptual vitality for care in a comprehensive perspective.

Keywords : Nursing; Health care; Psychoanalysis.
