This is the first book on the psychoanalytic treatment of children, young people and adults with Asperger's syndrome. It includes multi-disciplinary contributions on psychiatric perspectives and psychological theories of the condition. There is an overview of relevant psychoanalytic theory, and chapters on Asperger's original paper, on first-person accounts, on assessment and on care in the community. Clinical case histories of children, young people and the first published account of work with adults provide the possibility of using psychoanalytic work as a means of diagnostically differentiating between sub-groups, as well as providing a detailed insight into the emotional experience of people with Asperger's syndrome. Both Editors teach on the Tavistock Clinic Training in Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy. They are widely published authors and have both given lectures and papers in the UK, Europe and the United States.
