Peter Paul Moormann, PhD, spent his whole academic life at Leiden University. He worked as a student-assistant in a project on artistic-creativity, graduated cum laude and became a research psychologist: First in a project on intelligence tests and soon thereafter in an effect study on Professor Bastiaans’ LSD psychotherapy (for survivors of WW II, suffering from PTSD).

Next, he gave courses in personality, neuropsychology, and clinical and neuropsychological assessment, within a part-time appointment. The remaining time he spent as a professional coach in figure skating and ice dance. Combining these two areas of interests allowed him to complete a PhD on “Figure Skating Performance”. Soon thereafter he was appointed as national coach for the Royal Dutch Skating Federation (KNSB). Somewhat later he became president of the Dutch association of sport psychologists (VSPN), where he developed a postdoctoral program on applied sport psychology.

Though retired now from Leiden University he is still teaching sport-psychology at VU University in Amsterdam. He has been invited several times as a guest lecturer by Dr. Achmad Syahid of the State Islamic University Syarif Hidayatullah in Jakarta. Together with his wife Francine Albach he published on the theme of child sexual abuse. Their interest in alexithymia was aroused by the psychic numbing found in both CSA and PTSD and had been intensified by the inspiring work of Bob Bermond on the affective and cognitive dimensions of alexithymia.
