About The Author :

David Hosier BSc Hons; MSc; PGDE(FAHE) was educated at Goldsmiths College, University of London and holds two degrees in psychology as well as a diploma in education. He is  the founder of childhoodtraumarecovery.com for which he has written over 700 articles over a period of six years. This book, in response to many readers’ requests, represents the culmination of this work by bringing together many of the most important of these articles to provide an overview of the topic of childhood trauma.

His academic interest in childhood trauma and its effects began in 1993 when he wrote his final year university thesis on the effects of childhood depression on academic performance.

He wrote this book in the belief, borne out by his own experience, that knowledge and insight into how one acts and behaves can have a positively transformative effect which exceeds that derived from advice. Because of this belief, he founded childhoodtraumarecovery.com – initially solely as a form of self-therapy and upon which this book is based –  to address his own issues relating to a traumatic childhood. The site now comprises over 750 articles.

He has, therefore, both very considerable academic and personal experience of the topic of childhood trauma and the ruinous effect it can have upon our adult lives.
