Psychopathology: Theory and Practice
6 February 2020 – Richard Curen
The world appears to be split into those that can be classed as neurotypicals and those that are neurodivergents. People with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) are a part of the neurodivergent group and people with Asperger’s Syndrome are part of the spectrum of people with ASD. There is a long history of misunderstandings and mistreatment of people with ASD across the medical profession and often in the consulting room. This seminar will present current thinking about ASD from a psychoanalytic perspective and suggest applications of that thinking in the treatment of individuals.
