Description

Speaker

Nick Duffell
Psychotherapy trainer, psychohistorian and author

Bio

Nick Duffell is best known as the author who asserts that elite boarding schools represent a trauma for children and a socio-political handicap for nations. Having practised psychotherapy for 30 years, he now trains therapists and is a psychohistorian and an Honorary Research Associate at UCL. Bridging the gap between psychological and political thinking, he promotes a depth-psychology perspective of issues that deeply affect public, such as identity and emotions, fear and vulnerability, but which are not properly addressed in political commentary.

Nick’s books include The Making of Them: the British Attitude to Children and the Boarding School System, 2000, Sex, Love and the Dangers of Intimacy, with Helena Lovendal, 2002, Wounded Leaders: British Elitism and the Entitlement Illusion - a Psychohistory, 2014, Trauma, Abandonment and Privilege: A guide to therapeutic work with boarding school survivors, with Thurstine Basset, 2016, and The Simpol Solution: A New Way to Think about Solving the World’s Biggest Problems, with John Bunzl, 2018. He contributed chapters to The Political Self and Humanistic Psychology: Current Trends, Future Prospects.
