The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma

A pioneering researcher transforms our understanding of trauma and offers a bold new paradigm for healing in this New York Times bestseller. In The Body Keeps the Score, Dr. Bessel van der Kolk uses recent scientific advances to show how trauma literally reshapes both body and brain, compromising sufferers’ capacities for pleasure, engagement, self-control, and trust. The Body Keeps the Score exposes the tremendous power of our relationships both to hurt and to heal—and offers new hope for reclaiming lives.

I’ve never read a research book like this, so it was a little daunting, but I learned so much about myself and what the medical community is currently working on in the trauma field. I’m starting therapy again next week and this has helped me get more confident in topics I want to go over with my therapist. *read along with audiobook*

I always recommend this book to someone who has been through trauma. It really goes into research and science about how it affects our bodies and minds. The book has some sensitive stories so it’s not for the faint of heart but it’s so real for that too. Loved this book and the validation it brings.
