A Sensorimotor Approach to Psychotherapy. Forewords by Daniel J. Siegel and Bessel A. van der Kolk
Psychological trauma profoundly affects the body, often disrupting normal physical functioning when left unresolved. This work provides a review of research in neuroscience, trauma dissociation and attachment theory that points to the need for an integrative mind-body approach to trauma.
