Datum narození:1953

Steve Biddulph je australský psycholog, rodinný terapeut a spisovatel, který napsal řadu knih na téma výchovy, a to zejména chlapců. Jeho díla se však také zaměřují na dnešní roli muže v západní společnosti. K jeho tématům tedy patří vztah syna k otci, přerod chlapce v muže, partnerství se ženou i vlastní otcovství, ale také práce nebo hledání smyslu v životě.

Ve svých knihách se zasazuje o laskavý rodičovský přístup a zdůrazňuje význam, jaký pro děti mají dospělé vzory. Upozorňuje také na nebezpečí, jaká hrozí dětem, které rodiče předávají do péče institucí dříve než dosáhnou dvou let.

Za svou práci, v níž vybízí otce k tomu, aby v životech svých dětí zastávali aktivnější rodičovskou roli, získal v roce 2000 v Austrálii ocenění Otec roku .

Je také ekologickým aktivistou, angažuje se i na poli lidských práv.

„WHAT IS CALMNESS? Calmness is not a character trait, it’s simply a skill. You have to decide that it matters, that the quality of your presence would be better if you slowed yourself down and were really connected to people and the moment you are living in. Then you practise until gradually it becomes part of you. It benefits everyone around you – they feel peaceful and happy in your presence. It’s exactly what children need in a parent. And it benefits you – with less stress hormones, you live longer and feel better. Calmness is well worth cultivating. Calmness is made up of certain actions; breathing deeper, dropping your shoulders, settling your muscles, feeling your feet strongly planted on the ground, focusing your thoughts on the job in hand in a steady easy way, and not going off into panicked thoughts. Even just counting three or four breaths, in and out, will slow your heartbeat and calm your mind down. Calm people are actually doing these things automatically; when an emergency strikes they intentionally calm themselves more in order to counter the tendency to panic and do the wrong thing. Self-regulating your level of emotional arousal is an incredibly valuable skill for life. All you have to do is notice, am I calm? If not, breathe a couple of times consciously, feel your feet on the ground, and notice how, as the last burst of adrenaline clears away, the calmness response starts to kick in. Practise this for a few days, and soon the natural appeal of calmness will pull you more and more to that peaceful and steady place. Everything is better – the taste of food, the scent of flowers, the feel of the water in your shower, warm on your skin. You will find that time slows down, and you can think more in the pause before you open your mouth. And that has real benefits!“ Steve Biddulph's Raising Girls
