Breaking the Cycle of Violence


Shame is one of the biggest causes of violence, argues Consultant Psychiatrist Dr Felicity de Zulueta in this TEDx presentation from January 2015.

Traumatic experiences, particularly in the early years of childhood, have a profound influence on emotional development and the likelihood that a person might resort to violence.

Felicity de Zulueta explains how emotional trauma can lead to future violence. She also talks about various techniques – from interactions between parents and children to mindfulness and talking therapies – that have a proven success in breaking the cycle of violence.
