9781564556943: Healing Trauma: Restoring the Wisdom of the Body

A Complete Course in Healing Trauma Through Your Body

Are you experiencing physical or emotional symptoms that no one is able to explain? If so, you may be suffering a traumatic reaction to a past event, teaches Dr. Peter A. Levine. Medical researchers have known for decades that survivors of accidents, disaster, and childhood trauma often endure life-long symptoms ranging from anxiety and depression to unexplained physical pain and harmful "acting out" behaviors. As a young stress researcher at the University of California at Berkeley, Levine found that all animals, including humans, are born with a natural ability to rebound from these distressing situations.

On Healing Trauma, this respected therapist and teacher brings you face to face with his effective new treatment – not a "talking" cure, but a deep physiological process for releasing your past traumas and instilling a harmonious awareness of your body. Drawing on nature’s lessons, Dr. Levine teaches you each of the essential principles of his four-phase process. You will learn how and where you are storing unresolved distress; how to become more aware of your body's physiological responses to danger; and specific methods to free yourself from trauma.

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, over 23 million Americans suffer from anxiety disorders – many as a direct result of trauma. Now, you can learn how to address these and other symptoms at their source – your body – and return to the natural trauma-free state that you were meant to live in. Over nine hours of instruction to free yourself from trauma through your body’s built-in healing process. This program includes a 24-page study guide.
