“The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma” is a book written by Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, a leading expert in the field of trauma and its effects on mental health. The book provides an in-depth look at the latest research on trauma and the body, and explores how traumatic experiences can impact mental health and behavior.
The book argues that traditional talk therapy is not always effective for treating trauma, as it does not address the physical symptoms that often accompany traumatic experiences. Instead, the author advocates for a holistic approach to treating trauma, one that takes into account the interplay between the mind, brain, and body. This approach can include techniques such as mindfulness, body-centered therapies, and somatic experiences, which can help to address the physical symptoms of trauma and promote healing.
“The Body Keeps the Score” provides a comprehensive overview of the latest research on trauma and its effects on the body, and offers practical insights and guidance for individuals seeking to heal from traumatic experiences. The book is well-written and accessible, making it a valuable resource for anyone interested in the field of trauma and its effects on mental health.
