About this Event

In my talk, based on attachment research, I will show how trauma or toxic stress in childhood, is not just an event that took place sometime in the past; it is also the imprint left by that experience on the mind, brain and body which affects not only how we feel but also how we perceive the world and how we think or lose the capacity to think.

The Speaker: Dr Felicity de Zulueta is Emeritus Consultant Psychiatrist in Psychotherapy at the South London and Maudsley NHS Trust and Honorary Senior Lecturer in Traumatic Studies at Kings College London as well as being a Group Analyst. She developed and headed both the Department of Psychotherapy at Charing Cross Hospital in 1984 and then Traumatic Stress Service in the Maudsley Hospital in 1996 which specialises in the treatment of people suffering from Complex Post Traumatic Stress disorder including borderline personality and dissociative disorders. 

She has published papers on the subject of Bilingualism and PTSD, BPD and dissociative disorders from an attachment perspective and is an author of a book called "From Pain to Violence, the traumatic roots of destructiveness" (2nd updated edition published by John Wiley and Sons, 2006). In addition Dr de Zulueta is a founder member of WAVE and the International Attachment Network. Since 2012, she works as a free-lance consultant psychotherapist with training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy, systemic family therapy, group analysis, EMDR and Lifespan Integration.
