CICAPP Fall 2019 Extension Program: Austism Spectrum
  Register Now »  

CICAPP Presents:


A 5-session extension program

Monday evenings, September 9, 16, 23, 30, October 7, 2019

Distance Learning is available

Instructor: Dr. Robin Holloway, Ph.D., C.Psych.

The aim of this clinical Extension Series is to encourage understanding of autistic processes in children and adolescents by examining materials the children themselves have brought into their therapies: their drawings and their videos. This understanding is from a psychoanalytic point of view, meaning that empathic receptivity to what the child is communicating becomes the central standpoint.

The “learning objective” is to develop an emotional appreciation of how autistic children may view and understand their world, and the difficulties and anxieties this may involve.

The artwork (and some of the videos brought in) by three young clients will be examined and discussed. The impact of these materials on those who view them will be a focal point. All three young clients whose work will be examined have artistic gifts, and their drawings offer a magnificent window into their worlds.


September 9: Early Sam: Project 1, “No David,” Project 4, “plurals” and Project 7, “David goes to killing school.”

September 16. Late Sam: Project 20A to 20E, “the two doors riddle.”

September 23: Jack’s drawings

September 30. JV “Project Interstellar,” the outer limits of Asperger’s.

October 7: Final considerations
