The Library of Analytical Psychology, Volume 3: The Self and Autism discusses the relationship between the concept of self and autism. The book primarily revolves around the work of Carl Jung. The first part of the book covers the theoretical aspects of analytical psychology; this part covers the concept of archetypes, self, and symbols. The importance of child experiences is also dealt with in the first chapter. The next part discusses the clinical techniques in treating children with autism. The last part presents case studies of infantile autism. The text will be of great use to psychologists, therapists, and councilors who are dealing with clients who have autism. The book will also be of great interest to readers who are concerned with autism.
