Treating Children With Autistic Spectrum Disorder : A Psychoanalytic and Developmental Approach
About this item
Treating Children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder: A Psychoanalytic and Developmental Approach outlines a unique model, the product of over twenty years of experience in working with children with this diagnosis within "Shaked" - a multi-professional educational-therapeutic day-car unit in Israel.
This book provides a comprehensive overview of this model and the psychoanalytic-developmental perspective underpinning it, which weaves together the various professional views into a single fabric integrating a therapeutic network which encompasses each and every aspect of the child's development. Drawing on psychoanalytic and developmental psychology, each chapters is devoted to the daily problems that arise when working with ASD children, such as weaning and toilet training, as well as the effects of ASD on wider family functioning, all in the context of administering treatment to young children in day-care and other non-residential settings.
Treating Children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder offers an essential, practical guide which will be an asset to any clinician working with young children on the autistic spectrum, as well as the parents and siblings of these children.
