Summary

The Body Keeps the Score is the definitive guide to trauma and its treatments. It is meant to help you to navigate the mind-body link so you can see the effects of childhood trauma and adult trauma.  

It dives into the stories we don't want to face. It also discusses treatment options, some of which are not conventional. Come and learn how to help yourself or someone you love. 

There is no easy way to talk to a victim about the abuse. There is no easy way to help them to move on, but this audiobook will help you to take the first steps. You will also find: 

  • Treatment options  
  • Medication vs. meditation  
  • The benefits of yoga  
  • Insight on how the brain works  
  • Knowledge of how the body keeps track of trauma for years to come

(Disclaimer: This is NOT the original book. If you’re looking for the original book, it is available from Amazon and Audible.)

So much practical.

It is the most important book I've ever encountered. These are based on our increasing understanding of the brain, and the old but neglected wisdom of the oneness of mind and body.

One of the best.

Extraordinary book which includes years of anecdotes backed by medical statistics which strongly suggest that the memory of trauma stays in our physical bodies, often expressed as injuries, and can be released and exorcized by certain specific kinds of therapies.

Dry interpretation of a fascinating book

I can see why someone might get a summary to pass a test or something. This is the first time I tried a summary and it will be the last. I got it along with the actual book to serve as a brush up on key points. Don’t judge the book by this summary. It’s a dry husk if the juicy original.

This was only a summary

I thought I was getting the entire book this was only a summary and I listen to it and less than two hours. I did not give me the information I was looking for time and audible credit.
