The Body Keeps The Score – Bessel van der Kolk

This book is about how trauma affects the body – and how it can be healed. “The number of people treated for depression has tripled over the past two decades, and one in ten Americans now take antidepressants”*. Trauma is an unbearable experience that happened in the past, that is relived constantly in the present, meaning it takes enormous amount of energy to function adequately – if at all. The goal of the book is to bridge brain science and everyday life so that we can heal traumatic experiences. It is a compassionate, moving book about the human condition with deep message of hope for everyone.
