#1 New York Times bestseller

“Essential reading for anyone interested in understanding and treating traumatic stress and the scope of its impact on society.” —Alexander McFarlane, Director of the Centre for Traumatic Stress Studies

A pioneering researcher transforms our understanding of trauma and offers a bold new paradigm for healing in this New York Times bestseller

 
Trauma is a fact of life. Veterans and their families deal with the painful aftermath of combat; one in five Americans has been molested; one in four grew up with alcoholics; one in three couples have engaged in physical violence. Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, one of the world’s foremost experts on trauma, has spent over three decades working with survivors. In The Body Keeps the Score, he uses recent scientific advances to show how trauma literally reshapes both body and brain, compromising sufferers’ capacities for pleasure, engagement, self-control, and trust. He explores innovative treatments—from neurofeedback and meditation to sports, drama, and yoga—that offer new paths to recovery by activating the brain’s natural neuroplasticity. Based on Dr. van der Kolk’s own research and that of other leading specialists, The Body Keeps the Score exposes the tremendous power of our relationships both to hurt and to heal—and offers new hope for reclaiming lives.

Terrible audio wuality

I have this book in hard copy and like to listen to audio books and read along sometimes. I payed for this and downloaded it without sampling it first, but the audio quality of terrible. It sounds like a robot in a tin can. I couldn’t stand to listen to more than 20 seconds. It’s really irritating. I’m so bummed ☹️.

This book can be very eye opening to the average person and to many therapists on the outer symptoms of trauma. It also has the depth and beginning structures to heal and also prevent future trauma through a variety of therapies that work, as well as awareness, attention, and intention.
