BIALER, Marina. The therapeutic writing of the autistic writer Tito Mukhopadhyay. Estilos clin. [online]. 2016, vol.21, n.2, pp. 390-411. ISSN 1415-7128.

This paper analyzes the texts written by Tito Mukhopadhyay, autistic-writer, which are portraits of his struggle to liberate himself from the autistic isolation, adressing mirroring and identification with imaginary doubles as pillars of the constitution of an image of self-body in autism. The invention of Tito's writtings portrays the therapeutic effects of writing, highlighting its importance as a major tool for (self-)treatment in autism, giving us clues about the conditions, which make possible leaving the autistic isolation, through those various created strategies that, with a relative effectiveness, allow him to keep his pseudopods extended towards others.
