Trauma and Hurt in the World of Work and Profession

Updated: Sep 14, 2023

Conflicts, obstacles, problems or seemingly hopeless situations in work and profession hold immense potential for growth. A potential to free oneself from old entanglements, to heal pain and to face truths. So what do the profession and the world of work have to do with our psychotraumas?

Much more than we think, see and also feel are the dynamics behind conflicts, decision-making problems and seemingly hopeless situations. It is important that we become aware of our perpetrator-victim dynamics as well as our servant attitudes.

"Someone sees me, I am important, I am praised or I am valued. And that is often an attempt to compensate for not having experienced being seen, being loved and being important in childhood."

In my interview series with Professor Dr Franz Ruppert - Professor of Psychology at the Catholic Foundation College in Munich and licensed psychological psychotherapist - we talk about a variety of topics this time:

  • Agriculture and hard physical labour

  • Monetary system

  • Conflicts at the university

  • Obstacles as potential for growth

  • Burn-out

  • Parents' career aspirations

  • Conflicts with deep inner desires

  • Midwifery as a profession

  • IT industry

  • Recognition, praise, money, career, competition

  • Illusion of the affluent society

  • Retirement & holidays

  • Work-life balance

  • Younger generation

  • Digitalisation

  • Silicon Valley

  • Ego, egoist

  • Organisation of companies

  • Shares

  • Unemployment, welfare

  • Financial dependence on parents

  • What is a good life?

The original language of the video is German. Subtitles are available in English, Frensh, Spanish and Portuguese.
