Reviews and Endorsements

‘Frances Tustin’s influence continues to grow, not least thanks to conferences coorganized by the Frances Tustin Memorial Trust. This book, edited by Howard Levine and David Power, expands on papers from the seventh conference in Boston, in which authors of differing orientations address Tustin’s contribution to the understanding of childhood autism and primitive states of mind. It will make fascinating reading for psychoanalytic workers with patients of all ages, and for anyone concerned with the foundations of experience.’
- Maria Rhode, Emeritus Professor of Child Psychotherapy at the Tavistock Clinic/University of East London, and Honorary Associate of the British Psychoanalytical Society

‘In tribute to the creative and seminal work of Frances Tustin, this superbly edited book takes the reader into the new terrain of unrepresented states, autistic objects, black holes and many other phenomena particular to the non-neurotic patients now presenting to analysts. All clinicians, especially those working with children, will benefit from reading this book.’
- Jack Novick, MA, PhD, president-elect of the Association for Child Psychoanalysis, and co-author of Freedom To Choose: Two Systems of Self Regulation
