An overarching theme suggests that a life together with an aphasic person means being used as a bridge between the aphasic person and the surrounding world...

The authors try to draw conclusions from Winnicot's articles on the discontinous nature of emotional development.

In an experiment of intensive care in a day-hospital for autistic or psychotic children they have tried to restore these attachments in the hospital itself, through continuous care by each member of the staff, regardless of qualification or training...
