In this book Vivian Broughton brings together all the important theoretical concepts on the topics of trauma, trauma survival and identity, developed by Professor Dr Franz Ruppert over the past 30 years, known as Identity Oriented Psychotrauma Therapy (IOPT). This book is likely to be of interest to therapists and professionals who work with people and their life difficulties, as well as anyone interested in understanding themselves better.
Trauma underlies most of people’s life problems, and in particular the traumas that happen very early in life. For the newly created infant the experience of not being wanted, not being seen, welcomed, loved and valued for who he or she really is, makes for a deeply devastating start to life. These early traumatic experiences then stay, buried deep in the psyche, and inform and influence the person’s ability to function well as an adult, to feel confident, form good relationships and to be happy. The essence of living a good life is based on our ability to know who we are, and trauma, more than anything else, is what disrupts and even destroys this ability.
“This book throws open the doors and allows, not only our colleagues from the IOPT community, but also newcomers to the work to be able to access and gain a profound understanding of IOPT Therapy.” Franz Ruppert
You can join one of the Online Working Sessions days with an Attendance Place, and watch what happens. It is up to you how much you take part, and it is fine if you just watch the processes and see how the Intention Method works. If you have any questions you can contact me.
There are some opportunities on the IOPT-Practitioner-Events website, however you can also attend any event that I do as part of your own IOPT student journey, and there are an increasing number of online opportunities with other practitioners for the IOPT Student. Organise your own learning course!
In addition I am open to being invited to work with peer groups for a day if that seems a good idea for any peer group members. If you would like me to come and work with your peer group for a day you can contact me direct to book a date.
