This superb book brought me to tears many time. Bessel Van Der Kolk has pulled together his and many others’ years of research in a way that truly touched my soul and makes trauma both personal and real. It is well past time to take trauma and its effects out of the closet and realize that all of us are effected by it directly.
If you want one reference book for trauma this is it. In it he covers the compelling research as well as the collected understanding of the best trauma therapies out there…all while making it as readable as novel.
This is a must read for anyone practicing healing work or therapy – find it on Amazon here: https://www.amazon.com/Body-Keeps-Score-Healing-Trauma/dp/0143127748
