Publisher's Summary

Unraveling trauma in the body, brain, and mind - a revolution in treatment.

In this culmination of his life's work, Peter A. Levine draws on his broad experience as a clinician, a student of comparative brain research, a stress scientist, and a keen observer of the naturalistic animal world to explain the nature and transformation of trauma in the body, brain, and psyche. In an Unspoken Voice is based on the idea that trauma is neither a disease nor a disorder but rather an injury caused by fright, helplessness, and loss that can be healed by engaging our innate capacity to self-regulate high states of arousal and intense emotions. Enriched with a coherent theoretical framework and compelling case examples, the book elegantly blends the latest findings in biology, neuroscience, and body-oriented psychotherapy to show that when we bring together animal instinct and reason, we can become more whole human beings.

What the Critics Say

"In An Unspoken Voice uses the author's experiences as a clinician and a student of comparative brain research to explore the nature and impact of trauma on the body and brain.... Case study examples blend biology and body-oriented psychotherapy in a fine collection of insights highly recommended for college-level psychotherapy holdings." (Midwest Book Review)

"With this book Peter Levine secures his position in the forefront of trauma healing, as theorist, practitioner, and teacher. All of us in the therapeutic community - physicians, psychologists, therapists, aspiring healers, interested laypeople - are ever so much richer for this summation of what he himself has learned." (Gabor Maté, MD, author of In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction)

    "Ed Nash shouldn't be reading audio books"

    ...and who ever directed this reading was out to lunch at the very least. What a mess!

    Viscera. Say it: vis·cer·a, emphasis on the vis. This word is used almost every page in this book and he never figures out how to say it. And viscera is not the only bizarre mispronunciation.

    Then there is punctuation. Mostly ignored. Headings? Just run them into the next sentence. Comas? Ignore or treat as periods.

    I will never buy another book read by Ed. Ed need to find another line of work. He almost manages to ruin this otherwise brilliant book. There were a few sentences where he did so much creative pronunciation that I wasn't sure it was English.

    "Beyond Exceptional"

    I'm now reading every single book that Levine has published. The Body Keeps Score is still my favorite book of all time, but I think that Levine's books (at least those I've read so far) and absolutely incredible. These should be required reading for everyone.
