Daniela F. Sieff, PhD is an author, scholar & speaker. For as long as Daniela can remember she has been deeply curious about what shapes us as human beings. In her 20s that curiosity led her to study for a doctorate in biological anthropology at the University of Oxford. Her research took her to a wilderness region of Tanzania to work with a traditional cattle-herding people. In her 30s, the focus of Daniela’s curiosity shifted and for the last twenty years she has been exploring how emotional trauma shapes us and how we can reshape ourselves through a process of healing. Daniela’s research into trauma brings together her own personal experience with knowledge that comes from depth psychology, anthropology, and evolution. She is author of Understanding and Healing Emotional Trauma: Conversations with Pioneering Clinicians and Researchers (Routledge 2015), and currently working on new books.
