Example text

As previously noted, his conception of aggression was quite different from Freud's. While Freud made early, tentative investigations into the connections between aggression, exploratory activity, and mastery, he left this line of inquiry behind when he developed a "second" instinct theory that linked aggression primarily to destructive urges and the death instinct (Freud 1920). Winnicott picked up the thread of Freud's early ideas, viewing aggression as synonymous with motility, activity, and vitality-as an aspect of instinctual love that seeks externality and, thus, fuels self-object differentiation.

If he or she attacks the caregiver and in unconscious fantasy destroys her, she will be lost as a resource. The anxiety aroused by the idea of this prospective loss becomes manageable, however, as the infant becomes aware that he or she has a contribution to make to the environment mother. There is a growing confidence Winnicott's Developmental Theory 53 that, following expressions of aggression, there will be opportunities for reparation. Given the survival of a caregiver who does not retaliate, instinctually driven attacks will be followed by quiet periods of rapprochement.

These circles expand to encompass school, peer groups, and related social contexts. With the "second individuation" of adolescence (Blos 1967), there are new opportunities to review and consolidate aspects of early development as physical maturity and socialization provide new testing grounds for autonomy and interdependence. Both friendships and intimate romantic relationships offer new opportunities for working out the balance between union and separation and their corresponding internal object relations.
