Book Overview

**Unraveling Trauma in the Body, Brain and Mind--a Revolution in Treatment**

In this culmination of his life's work, Peter A. Levine draws on his broad experience as a clinician, a student of comparative brain research, a stress scientist and a keen observer of the naturalistic animal world to explain the nature and transformation of trauma in the body, brain and psyche. In an Unspoken Voice is based on the idea that trauma is neither a disease nor a disorder, but rather an injury caused by fright, helplessness and loss that can be healed by engaging our innate capacity to self-regulate high states of arousal and intense emotions. Enriched with a coherent theoretical framework and compelling case examples, the book elegantly blends the latest findings in biology, neuroscience and body-oriented psychotherapy to show that when we bring together animal instinct and reason, we can become more whole human beings.

   Important information for understanding how trauma can be released
I was asked to read the book by a teacher at a yoga class. The purpose of this course was to assist me in understanding PTSD and other trauma, so I could better help my students. What is important is that there is a physical release possible with reducing the effects of trauma, he said.

   Great Resource for Trauma Victims
A great book, but very difficult to discuss. The book is a must-read for anyone who has been through trauma.

   this is useful
I am helping a friend write a book on dealing with trauma. The book came highly recommended and I can't recommend it highly enough. I highly recommend it to anyone who works in the medical field.

   Gentle Soul
Peter Levine, the gentle soul who gave voice to Bernadette Peters, died Sunday at age 82. Boudin has spent his life helping people release the trauma that has trapped them in their body. I'm very pleased the book has received such a respected and scientifically based review. I highly recommend it to anyone who has experienced trauma or not, Raymond said. However, he added, there are also smaller events in our lives that leave us trauma scars. Now Dr. Goin has developed a therapy that helps him get rid of these scars.

   Very good
These are the tools and procedure I have been looking for a long time. The academy has placed a training centre on the site and is seeking additional funding. And by understanding the methods in this book, you will be able to take an even greater role in your own healing path. Highly recommend. Note the introduction to this book: "Many thanks to God." The kindle version works very well and is nicely indexed. Also, the book with the CD cover is a quick-start guide workbook.

   Not recommended for the average brain, lol
I'm not holding a PHD, and I'm the one trying to heal here. Some sentences have words I have never even seen before and I have to Google them all the time. It makes it very hard to read and very discouraging for someone who just needs some help, he said. I can't keep focus reading this book and I'm sad because I really need to heal my trauma, Blair said. If you're a scientist or a psychiatrist, I don't recommend this book. It's just too much for me, Mr. D. Cowger said.

   Unspoken voice
Reminding us that we are all connected to our animal selves. We often forget about those who helped us get there.

   Best book on understanding trauma and what to do about it
As a former psychiatric social worker and now full-time bodyworker and movement therapist, I can say this is one book to get to understand what PTSD ptsi actually is and is not.
