About the Course
Two questions lie at the heart of this work: "Who am I?" and "What do I want?"
These questions go to the core of our existence.. they are the basic questions of our lives. Our inability to answer them clearly can demonstrate our state of inner confusion; if we have suffered a Trauma of Identity then we are confused as to who we really are.
Franz Ruppert, 2013
The Introductory Course for 2018 will consist of six 2-day modules over seven months, starting in April and finishing in October. The course will comprise experiential personal work in a safe group setting, and some basic theoretical explanation and discussion.
It is open to anyone interested in the topic of trauma and in exploring their own personal issues.
This course is an 'entry-level' course, which will be a pre-requisite for the Professional IoPT London training in 2019.
Identity-oriented Psychotrauma Therapy (IoPT) is founded on the theories and practice developed by Professor Franz Ruppert of Munich University over the past 27 years.
The IoPT theory is based on a specific understanding of trauma and the psychological splitting as the means of surviving traumatic experiences. This particularly applies to the very early stages of life and the challenge to the child of surviving within the particular context in which he or she is conceived, gestated and born.
