Frances Tustin's classic text Autistic States in Children (1981) put forward convincing clinical evidence that some forms of childhood autism are psychogenic and respond to methods of treatment very different from the behavioural techniques often adopted without success. Her pioneering work with such children has gained ground since the book was first published and she herself has revised her understanding of the aetiology of psychogenic autism. This revised edition of the book incorporates her new thinking based on recent infant observational studies and her own clinical experience.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`Frances Tustin's capacity to communicate is marvellously lucid. She is always in touch with a reader who is imagined to be curious and critical, but open to persuasion if given the necessary evidence, and here the evidence is beautifully presented.' - Juliet Hopkins, Principal Child Psychotherapist, Tavistock Clinic

`In this book the reader has the rare opportunity to spend time with one of the most clinically sensitive and theoretically astute analytic therapists of our time. Autistic States in Children (revised edition) is indispensible for any clinician attempting to do psychotherapeutic work with children or endeavouring to address autistic phenomena in healthier children and adults.' - Thomas H. Ogden, San Francisco Psychoanalytic Institute
