In diesem Tagungsband wird Aspergers klinisches Wirken und Forschungsinteresse – der Autismus – mit Beiträgen hochrangiger, internationaler Wissenschaftler in den Mittelpunkt gerückt. Anlässlich des Symposiums 2010 in Wien setzte sich die Wiener Universitätsklink für Kinder- und Jugendheilkunde mit ihrer jüngeren Geschichte und den an ihr tätigen bekannten Persönlichkeiten, darunter Hans Asperger, auseinander. Hans Asperger ist vor allem in jüngerer Zeit durch seine international beachtete Erstbeschreibung des faszinierenden Zustandsbildes des Asperger-Autismus ins Blickfeld der Öffentlichkeit gerückt. Das Symposium bot eine wissenschaftliche Plattform für eine konstruktiv-kritische und fundierte Auseinandersetzung mit dem Leben und Wirken Professor Aspergers – auch in der Zeit des 2. Weltkrieges – und ermöglichte damit die kritische Würdigung seiner Leistungen als Wiener Ärztepersönlichkeit.

Is Asperger syndrome a syndrome in its own right or is it a form of autism? Sufferers from the syndrome are like autistic individuals in that they show the same kind of impairments from early childhood; yet they are unlike them in being far more verbally articulate and socially adapted. They can be highly intelligent and reminiscent of eccentrics with their unusual interests, special skills and unworldliness. In this volume several of the major experts in the field discuss the diagnostic criteria of the syndrome, named after Hans Asperger who first described the condition in the 1940s, and illustrate their views with case studies drawn from their clinical practice. They also provide surprisingly practical suggestions on the education and management of autistic children. Current opinion on Asperger syndrome and its relationship to autism is fraught with disagreement and hampered by ignorance. This book gives the first coherent account of Asperger syndrome as a distinct variant of autism.

This pioneering book is a multidisciplinary collection of papers from psychiatrists, psychologists and child psychotherapists that aims to address the issue of variation within the diagnostic category of Asperger's Syndrome. Until now, books on the subject have been written from an organicist/cognitive viewpoint with few papers from a psychoanalytically informed basis, despite an increasing number of child psychotherapists treating children and adolescents with the syndrome. Children diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome share core anxieties but present a wide spectrum of strikingly different character traits and coping devices. There exists considerable overlap with other conditions such as Attention Deficit (Hyperactivity) Disorder, Borderline Personality, Schizoid Personality Disorder and psychopathy. The collection boasts a new translation of Asperger's original paper and a historical review of the changing psychiatric perspectives on Asperger's Syndrome, including recollections from Lionel Hersov, a personal acquaintance of Asperger. A child psychotherapist provides a commentary on Asperger's paper from the perspective of recent developments in the psychoanalytic treatment of children with autistic spectrum disorders. Cognitive approaches are reviewed and compared and contrasted to psychoanalytic theory. Two first-person accounts are included and studied as to how they link with and differ to psychoanalytic theory and the case study of a 10-year-old boy is discussed in relation to various diagnostic criteria. This groundbreaking book will be of interest to mental health professionals, teachers and all those concerned with Asperger's Syndrome. Contributors include Anne Alvarez, Lionel Hersov, Sally Hodges, Trudy Klauber, Maria Rhode, Judy Shuttleworth, David Simpson.

Understanding who you are can be a lonely and difficult process following the diagnosis of Asperger's Syndrome (AS). Asperger's Syndrome and Mindfulness illuminates this experience as an empowering path of discovery through the teachings of Buddhism. Chris Mitchell draws parallels between the experience of his own journey towards personhood through AS and the spiritual tenants of Theravada Buddhism, as outlined through the Eightfold Path, a guideline to personal development. Worry and anxiety, confusing desires or negative thoughts are among the everyday hindrances a person with AS faces. This book takes the reader through the key beliefs of Theravada Buddhism, such as Mindfulness and the Four Noble Truths, showing how practices such as Insight Meditation can lead to a positive resolution of these feelings. Talking openly about his own personal experiences, Chris Mitchell provides helpful tips and suggestions for improving confidence and self-esteem towards an overall better sense of self that will be of interest to anyone diagnosed with AS or their family and friends.

`Chris Mitchell was 20 when he was diagnosed with Asperger syndrome. Both his academic success and the horrendous bullying he suffered highlight the mixed blessings of mainstream education for a child with Asperger syndrome. While his eventual success is heartwarming, from today's understanding of Asperger, the ignorance and hostility Mitchell faced throughout his early life are shocking' - TES Extra for Special Needs 'This autobiographical account of a young man's discovery that Asperger's syndrome could explain his early problems and provide light at the end of the tunnel, is both insightful and inspiring. Parents of children with Asperger's syndrome and also older "aspies" will profit from Chris's hard won experience' - Dyslexia Contact '[This] is a straightforward read, full of concrete examples of how Asperger's syndrome affects the individual but at the same time acknowledging that every individual is different. Having experienced first-hand the vulnerability of the adolescent with Asperger's syndrome, desperate to make connections with those around him but constantly being knocked back, I was delighted to read about the friendships [Chris Mitchell] eventually establishes when he takes the brave decision to make contacts through the web and sets out on his travels. I would particularly recommend this book to those with little knowledge of Asperger's syndrome, especially for anyone involved in helping those with a diagnosis of Asperger's syndrome through further education' - British Journal of Special Education `This book is a 'must-read' for any parents of children with Aspergers syndrome and also older aspies themselves. They will be able to relate to the slightly quirky writing style and profit from Chris's hard won experience. These children are so individualistic and often isolated from like minds, so the book will provide some solace that there are other people like them' - Judith Stansfield, Chair North Richmondshire Community Partnership SEN ICT Consultant NASEN ICT Group BDACC Reviews and Literature Editor `This book shows how one individual with very severe handicaps due to Asperger's Syndrome won through in the end and achieved despite such a poor beginning. This is a book which should be read by anyone who has been diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome or feels he or she might have this condition' - Dr L F Lowenstein, National Association Gifted Children Newsletter 'This is an unusual book in that it is written by a man where most autobiographical books about autism are written by women. It is both very readable and well-written, with a detached an honest account of his childhood, family life and life prior to diagnosis. He gets on well with his family, and they are happy that he has written this book, and happy with the book, despite some implied criticism of how they brought him up. Indeed, it comes across as less aggressive than some accounts, so it is particularly insightful for parents and other empathotypicals who might find more black-and-white descriptions of their mistakes hurtful. As with every book written by someone on the spectrum that I have seen, it is a short book, giving a snapshot of his difficulties and joys before and also after his diagnosis, giving highlights of specific problems and pleasures. Overall I think it would be a good book for someone who recognises himself in the author, or as a starting point for deepening your understanding of your brother, son or friend, or, if you are already interested in this condition, to broaden your understanding of the ways that it present itself' - Asperger United '[A]n especially uplifting read for a young person or adult newly diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrom. It also would help those unfamiliar with Asperger's Syndrome to understand the condition much better' - REACH This gripping and at times astonishing story will be inspirational to all adults either facing Asperger's Syndrome personally or interacting with someone who has been diagnosed. In his own imitable style, Chris Mitchell describes his life before and after diagnosis with Asperger's Syndrome. We follow Chris through primary and secondary school, where his lack of social interaction and anger continually land him in trouble, and where he is bullied for being different. Only his excellent memory and specialist interests enable him to continue, and pass his GCSEs and a GNVQ in Media Studies. At university he is diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome. Suddenly his life makes more sense, and his self-awareness means his self-confidence returns, resulting in world travel, a Masters qualification in Information and Library Management and finally, acceptance. Chris Mitchell is a Records Assistant at Durham County Record Office, and also does public speaking on the subject of Asperger's Syndrome.
