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). It is likely to be of interest to therapists and all 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 traumas that happen very early in life. For the newly created child 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.
IOPT theory and practice puts these early traumas at the centre of the therapeutic healing endeavour, insisting on truth and reality as the only solution to the underlying pain caused by trauma.
Vivian writes about these painful issues with a clarity and compassion that makes this profound and in-depth analysis an immensely readable and accessible book for everyone - from therapists to clients and anyone interested in living a good life.
What is human sexuality? As the source of life why is it also often the cause of so much suffering?
The renowned psychotherapist Professor Dr Franz Ruppert shows in this book how sexual traumas come about, from the perspective of the victim and the perpetrator, with profound consequences for individuals, families and entire societies.
With his development of Identity-Oriented Psychotrauma Therapy (IOPT) it becomes possible to raise awareness of sexual psychotrauma using The Intention Method, and to resolve it psychologically and emotionally. Sexuality can then again be experienced as a creative force that gives pleasure and helps to achieve a healthy identity.
All currently available IOPT books by Franz Ruppert and Vivian Broughton, at discounted prices, except Franz's latest boo, Love Lust & Trauma.
