Description

This is the second book by Professor Franz Ruppert in English translation and continues his exploration of the impact of trauma across generations. Here he deepens his understanding of the process and function of psychological splitting as a natural response to traumatic events, exploring in detail the results such survival strategies have on the traumatised person and those with whom they are in close contact. His contention is that it is only by understanding in detail the processes involved, and developing an ability to recognise trauma, survival strategies and the healthy aspects of our clients, that we can successfully work with trauma as a personal experience and as an inheritance from our family system.
There are detailed examples of case studies illustrating the process of the disintegration of the survival psychological structure and the subsequent integration of the fragmentation.
In addition Ruppert gives a very useful account of his thinking about the methodology of Constellations as a means of achieving understanding and integration.

About Franz Ruppert

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.
