Description

People with Asperger's Syndrome have difficulty with interpersonal relationships, yet are well known to be loyal and dependable friends. Wendy Lawson felt she had a knack for upsetting people and was surprised to be told that she 'did friendship rather well'. In her frank and thoughtful analysis of what makes and breaks friendships, she explores what it means to have friends or be a friend - even a friend to oneself; what happens when times are tough and friends are scarce; whether one can be a 'good friend' without effort; and what other kinds of friendships there are, whether imaginary, animal or inanimate. These ideas are accompanied by practical examples, poetry and stories. Insightful and relevant to people both on and off the autism spectrum, Friendships: The Aspie Way is a fresh approach to a universal issue in human relationships.

Author Biography

Wendy Lawson is a mother of four who after years of misdiagnoses was finally diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder in 1994. Her youngest son was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome at the age of 12. Wendy has had an eventful and at times traumatic life and has worked as a qualified counsellor, social worker and psychologist in private practice for many years. She is the author of six books, including Understanding and Working with the Spectrum of Autism, Build Your Own Life: A Self-help Guide for Individuals With Asperger's Syndrome and Sex, Sexuality and the Autism Spectrum and ASPoetry: Illustrated Poems from an Aspie Life, all published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers.
