Frances Tustin was a pioneering child psychotherapist who broke new ground in working with autistic children in the latter half of the twentieth century. This book amplifies and extends contributions by Tustin to the study and treatment of autism, autistic spectrum disorders and autistic defences and enclaves in non-autistic patients. It offers readers a contribution to the understanding and treatment of primitive mental states and primitive character disorders.
