Researchers have shown that survivors of accidents, disaster, and childhood trauma often endure lifelong symptoms, ranging from anxiety and depression to unexplained physical pain, fatigue, illness, and harmful "acting out" behavior. Today, millions in both the bodywork and the psychotherapeutic fields are turning to Dr. Peter A. Levine's breakthrough Somatic Experiencing® methods to effectively overcome these challenges. In Healing Trauma, Dr. Levine gives you the personal how-to guide for using the theory he first introduced in his highly acclaimed work Waking the Tiger. Join him to learn about using body awareness to "renegotiate" and heal traumas—to "revisit" rather than relive them; emergency "first-aid" measures for times of distress; nature's lessons—the physiological roots of your emotions; and much more.
"Trauma is a fact of life," teaches Dr. Peter Levine, "but it doesn't have to be a life sentence." Now, with one fully integrated self-healing tool, he shares his essential methods to address unexplained symptoms of trauma at their source—the body—to return us to the natural state in which we are meant to live.
