Identity-oriented Psychotrauma Therapy (IoPT) is founded on the theories and practice developed by Professor Franz Ruppert of Munich University over the past 30 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.
This course may also be a useful starting point for anyone who is considering becoming an IoPT practitioner.
Course Fee: £695
Up to 27th July 2019 50% refund is possible. After that there will be no refunds. If the course has to be cancelled you will receive a full refund.

'Adult trauma is foetal trauma'
These are the core texts by Franz Ruppert and Vivian Broughton, exploring Identity-oriented Psychotrauma Therapy and The Intention Method. These books are all available from Amazon.
Prof. Dr. Franz Ruppert is Professor of Psychology at the University of Applied Science in Munich, Germany. He gained his PhD in Work and Organisational Psychology at the Technical
University of Munich in 1985.
Since 1995 he has specialised in psycho-therapeutic work, with a particular focus on the aetiology of severe mental disorders. This led him to an in-depth study of attachment processes and trauma and the resulting impact of early traumatisation on the infant.
Ruppert teaches in Germany and many other countries, furthering his insights into the deeper trans-generational effects of trauma in different cultures, and researching the methodology of Identity Therapy as a means of better understanding the effects and healing of trauma.
Vivian Broughton has been a psychotherapist in private practice since 1989. She met Professor Franz Ruppert in 2004 and has been collaborating with him ever since. From 2010 Vivian's work developed along the model of Trauma that Franz Ruppert proposes. Vivian established an International Trauma Training in 2012, originally in Denmark until 2015 when this Identity-oriented Psychotrauma Therapy Training moved to London.
Her latest books are The Heart of Things: Understanding Trauma – Working with Constellations and Becoming Your True Self: A handbook for the journey from trauma to healthy autonomy, which has also been published in Dutch and German, and is soon to be published in Swedish.
In addition Vivian posts regular blog pieces on a variety of topics connected with her work and Ruppert's Identity-oriented Psychotrauma Therapy on her website.
