New book is out!

Out today: Trauma, Abandonment and Privilege: A guide to therapeutic work with boarding school survivors by Nick Duffell and Thurstine Basset, 2016. We are delighted to be Routledge’s Authors of the Month.

TAP cover

You can’t really get what is so unique and regressive  about British society, which mitigates against our impressive civil liberties by keeping us rooted in class.

Many therapists themselves haven’t really looked at how boarding problems may be at the root of many of the problems they hear about on a daily basis – especially relationship work.

So here in these pages, enlivened by many personal stories, we summarise the understanding of this syndrome after 25 years of study, show how it can be hidden while society normalises it; we introduce a the Boarding School Survivor personalty types and The Trauma, Abandonment and Privilege Toolkit for therapists.

Please write us a review for your magazine, journal or on Amazon, if you enjoy it! Thanks!

  1. this study is rather important , that of the boarding school syndrome! This reaches me as a one who has received gestalt training and eschewed Freudian in my social work with families in England and in Canada! My book ” truth over Method: Art Matters ” answers to this problem by pointing out how we ought to take each case in hand ! Particular cannot be ignored while looking for universal truth ! should link my book with this one so that the entire psycho history of European civilization could be addressed in these two books together philosophically and phenomenologically!
