In Healing the Fractured Mind, Felicity de Zulueta and her co-authors offer the reader a journey into the human mind in search of an answer to the human paradox: how can we be both so loving and so destructive, to ourselves and to others?
The authors present the Traumatic Attachment Induction Procedure (TAIP) and show how they gained access to the hitherto unconscious or implicit traumatic attachment and its accompanying Internal Working Models. They discover that there there are many different human mindsets; that the way people feel and behave depends so much on how safe they felt in the hands of their parental figures and on the social context in which they are brought up in and live. This allows practitioners to manage, and in many cases ameliorate, some of the most intractable psychological disorders.
