Read by Sean Pratt.
Trauma is a fact of life. Veterans and their families deal with the painful aftermath of combat on a daily basis; one in five Americans have been molested; one in four grew up with alcoholics; one in three couples have engaged in physical violence. Such experiences inevitably leave traces on minds, emotions, and even on biology. Sadly, trauma sufferers frequently pass on their stress to their partners and children. Renowned trauma expert Bessel van der Kolk has spent over three decades working with survivors. In The Body Keeps the Score, 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. He shows how these areas can be reactivated through innovative treatments including neurofeedback, mindfulness techniques, play, yoga, and other therapies.

Summary / Annotation
Abuse and trauma's real costs
submitted by shermdock on August 16, 2016, 9:45pm
With gritty subject matter that showcases the damage people can do to each other, this book explains the cost of trauma. VanderKolk, not new to this topic, gives us the balm, though. Which is forgiveness and healing that comes with work and through reconnection to the physical through yoga, meditation and new therapies.
This book is based on research but also brings to it stories, so we can see first hand how abuse or trauma can have a lasting impact in most facets of a person's life. Inventive, humble, and real, this book is likely to have an impact on how we treat trauma for years to come. And it's friendly to a lay audience.
