Product Description


Part One of the present volume contains the author's views in their present state of development, which elaborate his ideas previously summarized in Children as Individuals. Part two on child analysis considers the present state of this discipline and puts forward ideas on its technique. Part Three is reserved for case presentations. There are two lengthy studies on childhood schizophrenia and another of primary autism which give sources for the author's recent conception of defenses of the self designed to protect the individuality of the child. The Self and Autism is a thought provoking and challenging volume.
