What potential does psychotherapy have for mediating the impact of childhood developmental trauma on adult life?

Combining knowledge from trauma-focused work, understandings of the developmental brain and the neurodynamics of psychotherapy, the authors explain how good care and poor care in childhood influence adulthood. They provide scientific background to deepen understanding of childhood developmental trauma. They introduce principles of therapeutic change and how and why mind-body and brain-based approaches are so effective in the treatment of developmental trauma. The book focuses in particular on Pesso Boyden System Psychotherapy (PBSP) which uniquely combines and integrates key processes of mind-body work that can facilitate positive change in adult survivors of childhood maltreatment. Through client stories Petra Winnette and Jonathan Baylin describe the clinical application of PBSP and the underlying neuropsychological concepts upon which it is based.

Working with Traumatic Memories to Heal Adults with Unresolved Childhood Trauma has applications relevant to psychotherapists, psychologists and psychiatrists working with clients who have experienced trauma.

MEDIA REVIEWS
For those interested in learning more about Pesso Boyden System Psychomotor Therapy (PBSP) and its use in the treatment of individuals who have experienced childhood trauma, Working with Traumatic Memories to Heal Adults with Unresolved Childhood Trauma by Petra Winnette and Jonathan Baylin was written for you. Winnette was a student of Albert Pesso and her description of the therapeutic content, interventions, and process of PBSP, along with four detailed case studies of this use of this treatment model, demonstrate clearly how and why this mind-body method of psychotherapy is widely considered to be very effective in treating unresolved trauma. Winnette also traces the roots of PBSP to attachment theory and research along with our developing knowledge of developmental trauma, while Baylin describes in an understandable and thorough manner a neurobiological understanding of why PBSP is likely to be effective treatment model for trauma resolution, new learning and integration. Along with learning the basics of PBSP, the reader is also likely to understand ways in which the PBSP therapeutic process and specific interventions are likely to positively contribute to the effectiveness of their current practice in providing treatment for traumatized adults. -- Daniel Hughes, Ph.D., Founder of Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy and President of DDPI
This is the book we have been waiting for! It is unique in integrating the neuroscience of early development, attachment theory and an intriguing therapeutic approach, Pesso Boyden System Psychomotor (PBSP). The theorectical perspective and insightful case studies of adults with unresolved childhood trauma may well change one's mind about the possibilities in psychotherapy. A great achievement! -- Michal Goetz, MD, Ph.D., Child Psychiatrist, Charles University in Prague
