About the Author(s)

Dr Felicity de Zulueta is an Emeritus Consultant Psychiatrist in Psychotherapy at the South London and Maudsley NHS Trust and an Honorary Senior Lecturer in Traumatic Studies at Kings College London. She developed and headed both the Department of Psychotherapy at Charing Cross Hospital and, later, the Traumatic Stress Service in the Maudsley, which specialises in the treatment of people suffering from complex post-traumatic stress disorder and other trauma-induced dissociative disorders. She has published papers on the subject of bilingualism and PTSD, BPD, and dissociative disorders from an attachment perspective and is the author of From Pain to Violence: The Traumatic Roots of Destructiveness and is a founder member of the London ACEs Hub to promote the study of ACEs (Adverse childhood experiences) and the application of trauma-informed care. She is the recipient of the Sándor Ferenczi Award 2020.
She lectures worldwide on the origins and treatment of complex PTSD and violence, has been a consultant to UNICEF and to the Singaporean army, and promotes the use of a video-based therapy called Video Interaction Guidance for the treatment of traumatised families in the UK, Italy, (Milan and Torino), Mexico, Ecuador, Ireland and Tanzania. She works as a freelance consultant psychotherapist with training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy, systemic family therapy, group analysis, EMDR, and Lifespan Integration. She developed a new therapeutic procedure called the Traumatic Attachment Induction Procedure (TAIP) and is currently carrying out clinical research on the traumatic attachment, its different manifestations, and its theoretical and therapeutic implications. This book is based upon that research.
