Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind and Body in the Healing of Trauma


Product Description

Published USA, 2015
Bessel van der Kolk has spent over three decades working with survivors of trauma. In his new book, he transforms our understanding of traumatic stress, revealing how it literally rearranges the brain's wiring - specifically, areas dedicated to pleasure, engagement, control and trust. The author shows how these areas can be reactivated through innovative treatments including neurofeedback, mindfulness techniques, play, yoga and other therapies. Based on Bessel van der Kolk's own research and that of other leading specialists, this new book offers alternatives to drugs and talk therapy and a way to reclaim lives.
