This book (In an Unspoken Voice) was on the new release shelf at the library today.
It says "How the Body Releases Trauma and Restores Goodness" on the front.
Doesn't that sound nice?
Has anyone read it? I haven't cracked it, it looks kind of intimidating and I only have 14 days to read it since it is a new release!
It's written by Peter A. Levine, PhD.
A review said:
“To be traumatized is to be condemned to endless repetitions of unbearable experiences. In this beautifully written and engrossing book, Peter Levine explains how trauma affects our body and mind and demonstrates how to call upon the wisdom of our bodies to overcome and transform it. The accounts of his personal and therapeutic experiences, integrated with the essentials of the sciences of trauma and healing, are highly informative and inspiring. His distinctive voice should be widely heard by survivors, clinicians and scientists.”
