How to Comfort Yourself with Transitional Objects

In childhood psychology, Donald Woods Winnicott proposed a key concept called “transitional objects” as a phase of his developmental system.

In the “transitional object” phase, the young child begins to separate his identity from others’ identities such as his mother’s. The child will obtain an object such as a teddy bear or a blanket that is used as a defense against anxiety.

The same technique can be used for trauma survivors seeking comfort.

Watch this video to help you find your feel-good transitional object today.
