Reviews

[A] significant addition to the literature on...mind-body medicine....[T]his sensible, respectful, non-anthologizing, step-by-step approach helps people create balance in their lives.
I strongly recommend this fascinating and essential reading...it offers clinicians of all orientations a variety of psychosomatic treatment strategies.--Julia Mueller
This book will be read and valued by researchers and clinicians alike, as well as academics and those who already practice body-oriented psychotherapies. This is a rare achievement. . . . [H]ighly recommended.
[A]n exemplary collaboration within the village of traumatology....[G]rounded in the whole body of knowledge available to us about trauma....They also offer explanations of new concepts in clear language and couple the technical information with familiar ideas....Although clinicians in particular, will benefit from reading this book, it also will interest clients, researchers, and other mental health professionals....I highly recommend studying this book at a leisurely pace that allows for an integration of all that it offers.
