Summary

Have you noticed that no matter how much time you spend in talk therapy, you still feel anxious and triggered? That is because talk therapy can keep you stuck in a pattern of reliving your stories, rather than moving beyond them. But, most of all, it’s because trauma doesn’t just reside inside your mind. Much more importantly, it locks itself in other parts of your body. When left unresolved, that trauma continues to live there, impacting your life, your relationships, your sense of safety, and your ability to experience joy in very real ways.

In Moving Beyond Trauma, Ilene Smith will introduce you to somatic experiencing, a body-based therapy that is capable of healing the damage done to your nervous system by trauma. She breaks down the ways in which trauma impacts your nervous system and walks you through a program designed to process trauma in a non-threatening way. You will discover a healing lifestyle, marked by a deeper connection with yourself, those around you, and with everything you do.

Many good points to learn for this!

I actually really enjoyed this book. I learned a hand full of things and others I might of already known. I like that I was able to just listen and then towards the end be able to have the activities and exercises to follow, that made it helpful. I will try these as recommended and hope it works!

Might be triggering

I haven't yet read the whole book but a fair warning to readers who suffer from trauma that there are descriptions of traumatic events in this book that might be triggering

Awesome listen for healing trauma

This book was recommended to me by my Doctor for trauma healing and was really informative. I enjoyed it at 1.30 speed. This book needs a PDF for the healing exercises on chapter 6.

Great information to take on a new healing routine

loved the book! very interactive with assessments to help you begin your healing practice.
I gave 3 stars for performance, only because I found the voice of the speaker challenging; robotic and unnatural. however, I could get past it, and found the book very helpful.

Excellent

This book is a life saver. And one I will always come back to. It’s simplicity is its power. It’s focus is exclusively on the body and not the mind. This book has the power to bring you out of your head and into your body so you can heal.
