Description


"When our senses become muffled, we no longer feel fully alive... If you have a comfortable connection with your inner sensations ... you will feel in charge of your body, your feelings, and your self."

Nowhere is this relationship more essential yet more endangered than in our healing from trauma, and no one has provided a more illuminating, sympathetic, and constructive approach to such healing than Boston-based Dutch psychiatrist and pioneering PTSD researcher Bessel van der Kolk.

In Recovering from Trauma For The Body Keeps The Score, he explores "the extreme disconnection from the body that so many people with histories of trauma and neglect experience" and the most fertile paths to recovery by drawing on his own work and a wealth of other research in three main areas of study: neuroscience, which deals with how mental processes function within the brain; developmental psychopathology, concerned with how painful experiences impact the development of mind and brain; and interpersonal neurobiology, which examines how our own behavior affects the psychoemotional and neurobiological states of those close to us.
Recovering from Trauma For 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.
