Waterstones Says

Eschewing traditional talk and drug therapies for groundbreaking holistic treatments, Van Der Kolk's acclaimed analysis of traumatic stress has grown in stature to become one of the pre-eminent texts on this contentious issue.

'An astonishing and important book. The trauma Bible. I cannot recommend it enough for anyone struggling with...well...anything' - Tara Westover

The effects of trauma can be devastating for sufferers, their families and future generations. Here one of the world's experts on traumatic stress offers a bold new paradigm for treatment, moving away from standard talking and drug therapies and towards an alternative approach that heals mind, brain and body.
