Dr. Sherkow’s New Book Now Available
Autism Spectrum Disorder: Perspectives from Psychoanalysis and Neuroscience, Dr. Sherkow’s new book, is now available from Amazon.com and Rowman & Littlefield. Written in collaboration with Alexandra Harrison, M.D., and William Singletary, M.D., the book bridges the gap between a psychodynamic approach to ASD and burgeoning data from the fields of neurobiology and neurofunction.
Based on current research showing neuroplasticity of the brain, the authors posit that treating ASD through intensive engagement of caregiver and child makes possible the successful psychoanalytic treatment of a neurobiological disorder. To this end, the authors examine both the clinical dynamics of their treatments and the possible impact of the treatment on neurobiological processes.
