Live Company: Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy with Autistic, Borderline, Deprived and Abused Children - Alvarez, Anne (1992) 

Children whose minds as well as bodies have been damaged by the intrusions of sexual abuse, violence or neglect, and others, quite different, who are handicapped by their own mysterious sensitivities to more minor deprivations, may experience a type of black despair and cynicism that require long-term treatment and test the stamina of the psychotherapist to the utmost.
