Publisher's Summary

For both clinicians and their clients, there is tremendous value in understanding the psychophysiology of trauma and knowing what to do about its manifestations.

This book illuminates that physiology, shining a bright light on the impact of trauma on the body and the phenomenon of somatic memory.

It is now thought that people who have been traumatized hold an implicit memory of traumatic events in their brains and bodies. That memory is often expressed in the symptomatology of post-traumatic stress disorder - nightmares, flashbacks, startle responses, and dissociative behaviors. In essence, the body of the traumatized individual refuses to be ignored.

While reducing the chasm between scientific theory and clinical practice and bridging the gap between talk therapy and body therapy, Rothschild presents principles and non-touch techniques for giving the body its due. With an eye to its relevance for clinicians, she consolidates current knowledge about the psychobiology of the stress response both in normally challenging situations and during extreme and prolonged trauma.

Clear, simple and incredibly valuable

I found this book incredible valuable. It was recommended by a trauma councillor who told me that the author was doing some great work in the area of trauma recovery.

The thing that struck me most about the book is how 'light' the writing style it is. I expected something 'heavier' and kept waiting for the 'heaviness'.

In the end, no heaviness was needed.

This is a valuable, well written book by someone who seems like an incredibly effective psychologist.

PTSD in a lullaby tone

I am reading this book for my Treating Trauma class. While I am thoroughly enjoying the content, I am struggling to stay awake listening to the reader’s overly soothing, calming, monotonous tone of voice. I will have to resort to a hard copy, unfortunately.
