Sue Reid

Sue Reid is a Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist, and Adult Therapist, with a special interest in Autism. She saw her first child with Autism in 1972, and has been working with children and adults on the Autistic Spectrum ever since. A passionate interest in Autism led to the founding of the Autism Clinical and Research Workshop in 1986 at the Tavistock, where she was a senior member of staff and where she continues to teach. Later, she also founded the Specialist Multi-disciplinary team in the Child and Family department. In both of these endeavours, she was joined by Anne Alvarez, with whom she has continued to enjoy a long and creative partnership. The Autism team organised a conference series for parents, families, clinicians, and other professionals living and working with Autism; one of these jointly organised by the Parents' group. She has lectured and run workshops in the UK, Europe, Israel, Australia, and the USA. Publications include 'Autism and Personality: Findings from the Tavistock Autism Workshop' edited with Anne Alvarez. She is director of the outcome study on the impact of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy on children with Autism, with Dr. Tony Lee. She works with a wide range of patients of all ages and, in addition, her specialist work includes the parents and families of those with Autism.
