I have a problem to solve. Some colleagues need advice on the interface between autism spectrum disorders and mental health problems. In particular they are trying to find reliable guidance on dual diagnosis regarding autism spectrum disorders and cluster B (emotionally unstable) personality disorders.
I am very familiar with the cluster B stuff but I need to source reliable (preferably evidence based) information both on autism and on any correlation. I’m aware of a couple of interesting Swedish studies both of which seem to suggest links with clusters A and C (not surprisingly) but not cluster B.
I also need a good primer on autism that I can use to create a syllabus for further study into the autism spectrum.
Can anyone help?
Please get in touch either via this blog (just comment on this post) or Email
if you can point me in the right direction.
