This book will be of interest to those who work with trauma, who have an interest in understanding new ways of looking at the role of trauma in our lives and finding resolutions to trauma.
Vivian Broughton follows the theoretical and practical work of Professor Franz Ruppert, the German psychologist who has devoted his work to understanding the dynamics of trauma.
The book sets out a history of trauma study, Ruppert's theories and developments that include early attachment trauma and the transgenerational impact of historical family traumas, and the methodology of the Constellation of the Intention as the means to find resolution from trauma.
Vivian brings her own perspective to Ruppert's work including extensive thoughts from a psychotherapeutic perspective.
However the book is not overly academic and aims to inform anyone, professional therapist or not, on the general topic of the impact of trauma on the individual and society.
