Format: Hardcover
This book is about psychological trauma; the trauma itself, it's consequenses and the effects of traumatic stress on body function. The book is well written and well organized. It is interesting to read about the historical development of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and to discover how different the consequences of trauma can be. The only drawback is that it's quite old for this area of psychology, which has developed fast in the last few years. Therefore, the author doesn't mention new methods for treating PTSD like EGG-biofeedback and EMDR. But as mentioned a well written book about an interesting field of science.

Format: Hardcover
A lot has changed about the subject of psychological trauma. Yes, there are more tools but the ideas and insight in this book are valuable and a must for the well-read provider. Van der Kolk is an expert and the information contained here makes this book a treasure. Just because a book is new does not make it better than this one. Why, one can still learn by reading Freud.

Bessel van der Kolk is a psychiatrist who is doing brain scans on traumatized individuals to discover how trauma affects the brain. His research is expanding our understanding of human behavior. He offers strategies to heal trauma that actually change and improve the functioning of the brain. This book is important reading for those in the mental health field and for those interested in understanding human behavior.
