The Body Keeps Score

By: Van Der Kolk (2015)
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.

The latest scientific research, now making headlines, supports what many have long intuited—that traumatic experience can be passed down through generations.
