Autism and Childhood Psychosis by Frances Tustin

Book Description

This is Frances Tustin's first book and the original statement of her views on autistic states of mind and the genesis of varieties of childhood psychosis. In it, she tackles problems of diagnosis as these relate to therapeutic intervention.Autism and Childhood Psychosis was first published in 1972 by Hogarth, London, and a year later by Jason Aronson, New York. Subsequently, it was translated and published in France, Italy, Brazil and Argentina, where it is now in its third edition. In France, it is a livre de poche. Twenty years ago, the book was greeted by a group of Italian therapists working at a unit for psychotic children at the Institute of Childhood Neuropsychiatry, Rome University, as "a ship coming into harbor bearing precious cargo". Here was a theoretical model that provided an anchor for therapists bewildered by the array of bizarre behaviors that seemed to defy scientific explanation and human intervention.

Books By Author Frances Tustin

Autistic States in Children by Frances Tustin Autistic States in Children, Paperback (August 1992)

This revised edition of Tustin's classic text of the same name encorporates the author's new thinking about autism based on recent infant' observational studies and her own clinical experience.

Protective Shell in Children and Adults by Frances Tustin Protective Shell in Children and Adults, Paperback (January 1990)

This book does not propose a 'cure' for autism. Rather, it suggests that psychotherapeutic treatment which is based on a deep understanding of the function of autism can modify and heal the overwhelming need for this powerful inbuilt survival reaction, so that it is used appropriately in a less overall and crippling way.
