    DescriptionFranz Ruppert's book explores the different types of trauma experience, along with the bonding theories of John Bowlby and attachment work of Mary Ainsworth and others, forming a multigenerational picture of the dynamics of trauma. Experiences of trauma can be so painful as to cause a split in the personality. It is impossible for a mother or father to avoid passing something of their own traumatic experiences on to their children through the process of bonding. These are the deeper feelings, perceptions, thoughts and embodied ways of being which form the residue of the trauma. Informed by his clinical experience Franz Ruppert introduces his insights into the origins of psychological distress. He has developed a unique way of working sensitively with Constellations to reveal and resolve the hidden dynamics of past trauma.

    Author Information
    Professor Dr. Franz Ruppert is Professor of Psychology at the University of Applied Sciences in Munich, Germany. He gained his PhD in Work and Organisational Psychology at the Technical University of Munich in 1985. Since 1995 he has focussed on psychotherapeutic work and specifically on the causes of psychosis, schizophrenia and other forms of severe mental illness. He has combined with this his interest in bonding and attachment theories and modern trauma work to understand better the effect of traumatic events, not just on those who suffer the event but on entire bonding systems. His publications include: Verwirrte Seelem (2002, Kosel, Munich), (Confused Souls, not available in English), followed by Trauma, Bindung and Familienstellen: Seelische Vertelsungen verstehen und heilen (2005, Klett-Cotta, Stuttgart) translated into English as Trauma, Bonding & Family Constellations: Understanding and Healing Injuries of the Soul (2008, Green Balloon Publishing, Frome, UK). His next book, Seelische Spaltung und innere Heilung (2007, Klett-Cotta, Stuttgart) appeared in English under the title Splits in the Soul: Integrating Traumatic Experiences (2011, Green Balloon Publishing, Frome, UK). Ruppert facilitates workshops in Germany and many other countries including the UK, furthering his insights into the deeper transgenerational effects of trauma in different cultures, and researching the methodology of constellations as a means of better understanding and refining its powerful effects on patients. This is Ruppert's third book available in English.
