Autistic States in Children by Frances Tustin

Book Description

Frances Tustin's classic text Autistic States in Children (1981) put forward convincing clinical evidence that some forms of childhood autism are psychogenic and respond to methods of treatment very different from the behavioural techniques often adopted without success. Her pioneering work with such children has gained ground since the book was first published and she herself has revised her understanding of the aetiology of psychogenic autism. This revised edition of the book incorporates her new thinking based on recent infant observational studies and her own clinical experience.

Books By Author Frances Tustin

Autism and Childhood Psychosis by Frances Tustin Autism and Childhood Psychosis, Paperback (January 1995)

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.

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.
