In An Unspoken Voice: How the Body Releases Trauma and Restores Goodness


Product Description

Published USA, 2010
In this culmination of his life's work, Peter Levine draws on his broad experience as a clinician, a student of comparative brain research, a stress scientist and a keen observer of the naturalistic animal world to explain the nature and transformation of trauma in the body, brain and psyche. His new book is based on the idea that trauma is neither a disease nor a disorder but rather an injury caused by fright, helplessness and loss that can be healed by engaging our innate capacity to self-regulate high states of arousal and intense emotions. The book eloquently blends the latest findings in biology, neuroscience and body-oriented psychotherapy to show that when we bring together animal instinct and reason we can become more whole human beings.
