How the Body Releases Trauma and Restores Goodness

384 pages | North Atlantic Books

Written by one of the foremost authorities on trauma, this extremely reader-friendly book will appeal to psychologists, psychiatrists, bodyworkers, and physical, occupational, and massage therapists who want to better understand the roots of trauma as well as anyone looking for new techniques for dealing with past and present personal trauma and loss.

In this culmination of his life’s work, Peter A. Levine draws on his broad experience as a clinician, a student of comparative brain research, a stress scientist and a keen observer of the naturalistic animal world to explain the nature and transformation of trauma in the body, brain and psyche. In an Unspoken Voice is based on the idea that trauma is neither a disease nor a disorder, but rather an injury caused by fright, helplessness and loss that can be healed by engaging our innate capacity to self-regulate high states of arousal and intense emotions. Enriched with a coherent theoretical framework and compelling case examples, the book elegantly blends the latest findings in biology, neuroscience and body-oriented psychotherapy to show that when we bring together animal instinct and reason, we can become more whole human beings.
