Publisher's Summary

A practical, integrated approach for therapists working with people (both adults and children) who have been impacted by developmental trauma and attachment difficulties

Kathy L. Kain and Stephen J. Terrell draw on 50 years of their combined clinical and teaching experience to provide this clear road map for understanding the complexities of early trauma and its related symptoms. Experts in the physiology of trauma, the authors present an introduction to their innovative somatic approach that has evolved to help thousands improve their lives. Synthesizing across disciplines - Attachment, Polyvagal, Neuroscience, Child Development Theory, Trauma, and Somatics - this book provides a new lens through which to understand safety and regulation. It includes the survey used in the groundbreaking ACE Study, which discovered a clear connection between early childhood trauma and chronic health problems. 

For therapists working with both adults and children and anyone dealing with symptoms that typically arise from early childhood trauma - anxiety, behavioral issues, depression, metabolic disorders, migraine, sleep problems, and more - this book offers fresh hope.

Critic Reviews

Nurturing Resilience offers a new map for navigating the process of healing from developmental trauma and skillfully incorporates the often-overlooked role of touch in repairing and restoring relational well-being. Written in clear, accessible prose and drawing on research across multiple disciplines, this book is a remarkable achievement by two seasoned and respected somatic practitioner educators.” (Rae Johnson, PhD, RSMT, chair of the somatic studies specialization in the depth psychology doctoral program at Pacifica Graduate Institute and author of Embodied Social Justice)

“Brilliant! Kathy and Stephen have produced a groundbreaking work that provides a deeper understanding of the interface between developmental trauma and mental and physical disorders and most importantly the pathways to their healing.” (Michael Ocana, MD, medical director of Kelowna Adolescent Psychiatric Unit and clinical assistant professor at the University of British Columbia) 

“This book synthesizes the simplicity of our human quest for safety and connection with the complexities of our biological design. As vanguards in somatic therapies, Kathy and Stephen have trained thousands of therapists all over the world and are now graciously imparting their strategies for resilience through this gift of their combined wisdom.” (Christopher Walling, PsyD, president of the United States Association of Body Psychotherapy)
