Summary and Info
This is the first collection of papers published which spans work with autistic children and autistic features in adults. Many of the adult patients described are less ill than autistic children whose development has ground to a halt at an early age, but at the core of their difficulties can be found autistic features remarkably similar to those of the more floridly disturbed children. This leads several writers to conclude that autistic features are to be found in many adults―some would say in all of us. The insights contained in these papers open up access to deep levels of the human psyche and have far-reaching clinical implications.Classics in the field are included as well as some more recent publications, with chapters by Frances Tustin, Anne Alvarez, Maria Rhode, Susan Reid, Paul Barrows, D. Houzel and D. Simpson. In the field of work with adults, there are contributions by Frances Tustin, Sydney Klein, Thomas Ogden, Noemi and Pualuan de Gomberoff, Kate Barrows and Caroline Polmear.
