What is the Frances Tustin Memorial Trust?

The Frances Tustin Memorial Trust was established in 1995, dedicated to the teaching, expansion and extension of Frances Tustin's seminal work on the understanding and treatment of autistic spectrum disorders in children, adolescents and adults.

The Trust awards a cash prize of $1,000 to the author of an outstanding clinical paper on the psychoanalytic treatment of autistic states in children or adults.       ...more
