Living as an Autist : the Evolution of a Patient from Childhood to Adult
Gilbert Diatkine, Yves Manela, Janine Simon, Bernard Touati
This document relates to the first psychoanalytical treatment of an autist patient. His doctor, Dr Janine Simon,
recalls for us the great stages of the treatment.
During two consultations held by Rene Diatkine, this adult patient reveals his own world to us. Psychoanalists,
specialised in the treatment of autism, share with us their reflexions on the clinical aspect of these talks
and the mental process of this patient.
