FERREIRA, Juliana Araújo  e  ABRAO, Jorge Luís Ferreira. The encapsulation system: the evolution of the concept of autistic shapes and autistic objects in the work of Frances Tustin. Estilos clin. [online]. 2014, vol.19, n.3, pp. 398-413. ISSN 1415-7128.

Frances Tustin was a psychoanalytic oriented child psychotherapist widely recognized for her therapeutic effectiveness with autistic and psychotic children. Her theoretical contributions on the dynamic autistic functioning broaden the understanding of the intrapsychic functioning of these children, their bonds with their caregivers and the therapeutic possibilities. In this paper, we will discuss two of the most important concepts of the author about self-generated encapsulation by these children: the autistic objects and shapes.

Palavras-chave : Frances Tustin; autism; autistic objects; autistic shapes.
