"With eloquence and empathy, Dr Bromfield describes a new therapeutic approach for children and adolescents with Asperger Syndrome and High Functioning Autism. A much needed volume, ... highly readable and very moving." (Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 20 October 2011)
From the Back Cover
Psychotherapy based on the practices described in this book will change the destiny of children and adults with Asperger Syndrome to one of greater connectivity to themselves and others. `This should become the primary text for psychotherapists working with children and adolescents with Asperger's. Tony Attwood, PhD, author of The Complete Guide to Asperger's Syndrome
This hugely optimistic but realistic author leads the reader into his experience ... with a mixture of warmth and good humor ... A passionate account. You do not need to be a clinical psychologist to find seeds of inspiration.... Read this book and pass it on. Journal of Social Work
Impressive ... Supremely accessible ... Never doctrinaire, Bromfield integrates his perspective with key research findings and emphasizes the importance of a multidisciplinary approach ... This exemplary book is recommended for both novice and experienced therapists. New England Psychologist

I had longed to find answers to questions such as, "What do these kids feel?" "Can (play) therapy really help these kids?" "How can I better treat them?" until I finally found this great work.
The book covers many issues surrounding kids with Asperger's, such as their feelings, cognition, and communication. The author helps readers take a good look at what goes on in therapy with his moving and sometimes funny case examples.
But what I liked most about this book is the author's genuine compassion towards his clients, which you can feel on every page, in every sentence that he writes. I have yet to find a book on Asperger's written by an author who is so HUMAN as Dr Bromfield (He's got a great sense of humor too, which also makes the book an enjoyable read).
Words cannot express how thankful I am of the author. This book helped me so much in my practice.
Hope this review helps!
