Presented by the Psychoanalytic Association of WCSPP
Given the current high rates of autism, at some point most clinicians will work with either an individual on the spectrum or with a family member of someone touched by this condition. This talk will delineate some of the significant and influential consequences of unique sensory processing, a characteristic that affects over 90% of individuals with autism. A variety of challenges faced by autism parents and by clinicians working with this population will be demonstrated through personal anecdote and clinical vignette. Ways in which these challenges can be usefully met by adopting a mentalizing approach that recognizes the considerable effects of sensory processing differences will be described.
Nancy J. Crown, Ph.D. is a clinical psychologist and psychoanalyst in private practice on the Upper West Side of New York City. She works with children, adolescents and adults, including some who are Deaf and communicate using American Sign Language. She is a graduate of the NYU Postdoctoral Program in Psychoanalysis and faculty at both the William Alanson White Institute/ Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy Training Program and at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine/Psychiatry Residency Program. She teaches and publishes on a variety of topics.
