Body Remembers: The Psychophysiology of Trauma and Trauma Treatment
Illuminates the value of understanding the psychophysiology of trauma for both clinicians and their traumatized clients. Traumatized people hold a memory of that trauma in their brains and bodies. This is the first book to link this phenomenon of somatic memory and the impact of trauma on the body. Reducing the chasm between scientific theory and clinical practice and bridging the gap between talk and body therapy, Rothschild presents techniques for addressing the memory in the body. The somatic techniques are chosen with an eye to making trauma therapy safer while increasing mind-body integration.
