I just wanted to remind you of the web pages I have put up our website which are focused on Trauma and its Impact and The Healing of Trauma.
These three pages are based on the work of Bessel van der Kolk and his colleagues. I strongly recommend you read Bessel’s new book The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma, which is simply brilliant. You will get to see how much more we have learnt about trauma and its healing in the past two decades.
These pages include two short film clips, an interview with Bessel and a long film of a talk he gave in Boston in mid-2014. You see from these film clips that Bessel is a very special person.
"Study after study shows that having a good support network constitutes the single most powerful protection against becoming traumatized. Safety and terror are incompatible." Bessel van der Kolk
