Trauma is an inevitable experience of life.

One in five Americans has been molested, veterans and their families suffer the aftermath of combat, one in three couples have resorted to physical violence.

Experiences like these literally rearrange our brain’s wiring in areas specific to pleasure, engagement, control and trust.

Unfortunately, this rewiring causes people to project their stress and trauma on their loved ones.

Dr. Bessel, author of the book “The body keeps the score”, has spent over 3 decades working with survivors and researching along with leading specialists.

In the book, he lays down how the areas of the brain affected by trauma can be reactivated by mindfulness techniques, play, yoga and other therapies.

He offers proven alternatives to drugs and talk therapy.

It is a brilliant book that offers a new paradigm for healing.
