Bessel van der Kolk has worked with trauma survivors for over 30 years. He shows us how traumatic stress literally rewires our brains, specifically areas dedicated to pleasure, enjoyment, control, and trust, and reveals how we can use this knowledge to heal ourselves.
“A compassionate, intelligent and transformational book about trauma.”
The Book Guide® Editor
Neither talking nor drug treatments have been completely effective. With stories of his personal experiences and those of experts around the world, The Body Keeps the Score sheds new light on the ways to get out of trauma by regulating the body and the mind through sports, drama, yoga, meditation and other paths to equilibrium. According to Dr. van der Kolk’s own research and that of others, The Body Keeps the Score offers proven alternatives to drugs and psychotherapy—and a way to regain lives.
