Book: Bessel Van Der Kolk
This landmark book connects the dots between trauma and its effects on our bodies, minds, and life experiences. Such a helpful resource for those working to reclaim their lives and discover the sources of their suffering. It’s comprehensive, but with bite size sub-headings to quickly look up topics of interest. Bessel devotes a final section to recovery paths that include successful, non-invasive treatments.
My felt experience was reflected all over this book--from The Imprecision of Psychiatric Labels to A Window into the Nervous System. It is an insightful exploration into our wounds of the past and why they still may be happening. This book affirmed my own experience as normal.
