In The Body Keeps the Score, Bessel van der Kolk transforms our understanding of traumatic stress, revealing how it literally rearranges the brain’s wiring - specifically areas dedicated to pleasure, engagement, control, and trust. He shows how these areas can be reactivated through innovative treatments including neuro feedback, mindfulness techniques, play, yoga, and other therapies.

As a trauma survivor this book completely embodies my life's experience. This is a title I want to experience again, as it is so rich with insight. For the first time ever I feel validated. I finally have words to describe how I felt then and feel now. I believe that the treatments described in this book will be a turning point in my life.
