Following the Affinity Therapy symposium on 5th and 6th march this year, this book provides new developments about autism treatment: recent research initiated here enable us to open a major perspective regarding the consideration of autistic's specific way of functioning and to define, even develop principles and the logic of " the elective affinity of autistic mind" in view of major advances on institutional cares of autistics.

Authors – parents, autistics, professionals and searchers – feature in a precise way how to support specific affinities, passions and obsessions. Indeed, taking into account the “Real” they endure and defenses they elaborate to cope with it create an opening where the know-how of everyone shows how much bonding become possible.

The main objective of this work – a political and clinical objective – is to show the interest of Affinity therapy, to demonstrate the litter of it, and its dealings with the treatment of autism implemented in the “pratique à plusieurs” oriented with the psychoanalytic discourse.
