Reviews

This wonderfully illustrated book will be a godsend to anyone wishing to understand the effects of trauma. Such clear, accessible explanations of how we hold, process and release trauma based on the latest research have been long overdue. This little book will be invaluable to both therapists and the public alike.--John Wilks, Bowen and craniosacral instructor and author of 'Choices in Pregnancy and Childbirth' and 'Using the Bowen Technique to Address Complex and Common Conditions'
It would seem impossible that the weighty subject of trauma could be explored so thoroughly in a comic book format. Yet this pairing of text and image so perfectly balances academic rigor, whimsical design, and engaging little narratives. At its heart, this book beautifully inspires the reader to see personal trauma as an opportunity for healing and growth.--Nkem Ndefo, Certified Nurse Midwife, Founder of TRE Los Angeles, speaker, and trauma educator
Using simple comics, concise explanations and a healthy dose of wit, this clever book not only explains how trauma affects our body and brain, but more importantly, outlines how to support our body's innate ability to discharge and recover from trauma.--Richmond Heath, Physiotherapy and Certified TRE Trainer, Trauma Release Australia
Steve, once again in talking head mode, thus diagrammatically takes us through the myriad different forms that trauma can take and what responses we can expect. As before, it's the incredible degree of symbolism and visual metaphor that Sophie puts into every single illustration which transform this from merely being a succinct and extremely clear explanation of the facts to a fun filled pamphlet of pictorial educational enablement. I think the beauty of this and their previous work is they manage to deal with such complex topics in a manner that would be perfectly digestible and understandable even for primary school kids without remotely compromising on the scientific facts. Brilliant!--Jonathan "Page 45 "
I'd recommend this comic anyone who has experienced trauma or who is working with someone who has. It provides clear and relatable ways of understanding and talking about the effects of trauma, and some sensible suggestions for taking the first steps towards recovery.--Nikki Luke, research Fellow, Rees Centre "Rees Centre Newsletter "
