    wow.. im surprised to hear that autism is treated like that in France.

    People here in Australia with on the autism spectrum ,risk being treated by psychs too as it can be very hard to get diagnosed here and hence misdiagnoses often takes place (esp in adults who have had it all their lives).

    I know someone in my town who they mistook Autism with chronic depression (not realising the person just couldnt organise, sleep late in, didnt get on with others and hence didnt like to socialise etc etc due to Aspergers... and gave him Electric shock treatment which didnt of cause work and just left him with brain dysfunction (brain damage) issues (he couldnt study after that due to the memory issues that psych treatment caused).

    but wow.. its inconceivable to me that France is treating using psychs on purpose

    What an absolute disgrace.
    I am so glad so many parents have caught on & refuse this 'professional' abuse of their children to continue. They must be so lost as where to turn to next :(

    Freud, well that say's it all. A Cocaine user who had the hots for his own mother. Now that's SICK.

    When I first read about the controversy around ME/CFS it immediately reminded me of the issue of autism in France. Despite the whole world acknowledging for years it's a neurodevelopmental problem, the French psychoanalysis school of psychiatry (which is a strong lobby in child psychiatry) still treats autistic kids like psychotics, with a lot of catastrophic consequences for them and their family. A documentary has recently been done by Sophie Robert to condemn this situation: le mur, la psychanalyse à l’épreuve de l’autisme.

    Here’s an extract with English subtitles. I warn you, it’s difficult to believe that these people are allowed to take care of children.






    3 of the psychoanalysts interviewed in the film attacked Sophie Robert, made a trial to prevent the film from being authorized. Here’s a link to the whole story in English. The trial is not over, and the film is still forbidden in France.

    Rampant superstition and delusion (from the psychiatrists of course).
