The Body Keeps the Score
- Mind, Brain and Body in the Transformation of Trauma
- By: Bessel van der Kolk
- Narrated by: Sean Pratt
- Length: 16 hrs and 16 mins
In this audiobook, Dr Bessel van der Kolk offers a new paradigm for effectively treating traumatic stress. Neither talking nor drug therapies have proven entirely satisfactory. With stories of his own work and those of specialists around the globe, The Body Keeps the Score sheds new light on the routes away from trauma - which lie in the regulation and syncing of body and mind, using sport, drama, yoga, mindfulness, meditation and other routes to equilibrium.
Well worth the credit

Understand trauma and how it affects a body
Great book. Helped me gain a deeper understanding of my own trauma, how it affected my behaviour, thought patterns and so on. It can be triggering, as there are a lot of descriptions of the trauma, but examples of other people dealing with similar issues make you feel less alone and tools discussed to treat trauma give you hope for a better future.
