Summary
The DSM-5 (2013) classifies all autism-related disorders, including Aspergers, under the heading autism spectrum disorder. This book argues that this lumping together is unhelpful for clinicians. Instead, finer diagnostic distinctions are helpful to clinicians who treat children with Aspergers.This book spells out in detail the psychodynamics the author has repeatedly uncovered in Aspergers children, adolescents, and adults, and explores the central factors in the aetiology of Aspergers Disorder. There is a section suggesting how Aspergers can be adequately diagnosed from the outside (using external descriptive features) and more importantly from the inside (based on internal psychodynamic processes). Finally, there is a section outlining psychodynamic treatment approaches to Aspergers children, based on their psychodynamics and on which type of Aspergers is present.The book includes numerous case illustrations to help the reader appreciate the central psychodynamics that are regularly observed in Aspergers children, namely splitting of the self into victim and bully aspects, and projective identification into remote objects. On the basis of their psychodynamics, and especially which aspect of their split self is predominant, three different types of Aspergers are outlined which require different treatment approaches--Provided by publisher
