Trauma is a fact of life. Veterans and their families deal with the painful aftermath of combat; one in five Americans has been molested; one in four grew up with alcoholics; one in three couples have engaged in physical violence.

In The Body Keeps the Score, he uses recent scientific advances to show how trauma literally reshapes both body and brain, compromising sufferers capacities for pleasure, engagement, self-control, and trust. He explores innovative treatmentsfrom neurofeedback and meditation to sports, drama, and yogathat offer new paths to recovery by activating the brains natural neuroplasticity. Based on Dr. van der Kolks own research and that of other leading specialists, The Body Keeps the Score exposes the tremendous power of our relationships both to hurt and to healand offers new hope for reclaiming lives.
