Trauma is an integral, inescapable part of life. Even when our symptoms do not reach the level of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), trauma can challenge our ideas about who we are with devastating consequences for our health. Often enough, it compounds our pain and confusion with feelings that we’ve been responsible for what has happened to us – whether that be a broken relationship, a loss or a traumatic, painful experience or triggering event. In Transforming Trauma, Harvard-trained Psychiatrist and world-recognised authority and pioneer of mind-body medicine Doctor James Gordon, presents the first evidenced-based program that will help to reverse the psychological and biological damage caused by trauma.
He will equip readers with the tools and techniques of self-care that he has used over the last 50 years to help thousands of people across the world who have suffered – from Syrian refugees and 9/11 survivors to everyday people with emotional or physical illness.
He will help us re-establish broken brain connections and promote the healthy integration of thoughts and feelings; be freed from the hopeless rumination that binds us to our traumas and offer a new path for hope and healing and an opportunity to reclaim our daily lives and experiences.
