Working with children with autistic spectrum disorder: Psychoanalysis and neurobiology
Date:1/9/2008

New York - As part of the Winter 2008 Meeting of the American Psychoanalytic Association, psychoanalysts Susan P. Sherkow, M.D. (New York, NY) and Martha Herbert, M.D., Ph.D. (Boston, MA) will lead a discussion regarding "Psychoanalytic Approaches to Working with Children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder: A Dialogue between Psychoanalysis and Neurobiology." This session will be held on Wednesday, January 16 from 7:30 pm to 10: 00 pm at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, 301 Park Avenue, New York. Dr. Herbert is Assistant Professor in Neurology at Harvard Medical School and a Pediatric Neurologist at Massachusetts General Hospital.

This discussion group will extend a dialogue which began last year at the Winter 2007 Meeting with Dr. Herbert who is renowned for her work concerning the neurobiology of autistic spectrum disorder. This year, Susan Sherkow, M.D. will present clinical material from her analytic treatment of a child presenting with autistic spectrum disorder (ASD). This will serve as the basis for the discussion with Dr. Herbert. Among other topics, the discussion will include neurobiological perspectives on autistic spectrum disorder, as well as the concept of neuroplasticity and ways in which psychoanalytic treatment can affect brain functioning in children with ASD.
