“The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma” is the new Bible for anyone affected by trauma, or who works in the field. Bessel van der Kolk M.D is the author of this book. He is the founder and medical director of the Trauma Center in Brookline, Massachusetts. He is also a professor of psychiatry at Boston University School of Medicine. In this book, Bessel van der Kolk uses modern neuroscience to demonstrate that trauma physically affects the brain and the body, causing anxiety, rage, and the inability to concentrate.
It covers the signs of its victims and tells that its victims have problems remembering, trusting, and forming relationships. They have lost control. Using a combination of traditional therapy techniques and alternative treatments such as EMDR, yoga, neurofeedback, and theater, patients can regain control of their bodies and rewire their brains so that they can rebuild their lives. The author uses case histories to demonstrate the process. All in all, this accessible book offers hope and inspiration to those who suffer from trauma and those who care for them.
