From the Publisher"The clinical material is moving, and among those individuals whose histories and vignettes were selected for inclusion in the book, the reader gains tremendous perspective intothe world of Asperger syndrom and on the potential for psychodynamic psychoteherapy to attentuate fears, modify defenses, and realize interpersonal desires more fully."
"This remarkable compendium reviews the history and contemporary views of the diagnosis and treatment of Asperger’s syndrome, on the way dispelling the mistaken climate of blame and the current false oppositions between brain and mind. The authors support a multi-disciplinary approach to this condition, about which much has still to be discovered. Case histories of children, young people and adults helped by psychoanalytic psychotherapy contribute clinical evidence of their wide range of individual differences, their inner sufferings and protective strategies, their limits and their potential. This is a book for parents, teachers, psychiatrists, psychotherapists—indeed all who live or work with those affected by Asperger’s syndrome."
"The enigma of Asperger’s syndrome has attracted some of the best minds in Child Psychiatry and Psychology, Genetics and Neuroscience. This stimulating yet demanding compilation describes the psychoanalytic psychotherapy perspective on treatment for adults and children, and the support required for parents in making sense of their children’s behavior, socialization and education. It is a worthy addition to knowledge of the many faces of this intriguing syndrome."
