Book Overview

  • Introduces a new, body-centered understanding of white supremacy--how it is literally in our blood and our nervous systems.

  • Offers a step-by-step solution--a self-help manual--in addition to incisive social commentary.

  • Standing on the shoulders of giants, the book picks up where Ta-Nehisi Coates' Between the World and Me and Bessel van der Kolk's The Body Keeps the Score left off.

  • Resmaa is the first mental health professional to bring recent discoveries in neurobiology and somatic healing methods to bear on the subject.

  • Resmaa is the first to also address the vicarious trauma experienced by white and blue Americans (police officers).

  • Examines how trauma passes down through generations of African Americans.

  • The author is a frequent lecturer and offers workshops for police on healing from trauma and related topics at conferences of mental health clinicians and other professionals. Upcoming venues include the conferences of the National Council on Family Relations and the Minnesota Association of Marriage and Family Therapy.

       Missing Chapters 2,3,4, and 5
    I am reading the book. The book I bought is missing some chapters. My copy jumps from page 24 to 73. Does anyone know how to get a new copy?

    This is a great book. I kept it because I really enjoyed it, even though we never used it.

       A disappointing read
    The work tries to be for clinicians and the general public at the same time. His mischaracterizations of talk therapy and misinterpretations of neuroscience research are concerning for a self-proclaimed trauma therapist.

       Absolute wisdom
    The book is about healing the trauma that divides our nation. This book makes sense to me as a trauma therapist because I know how trauma can show up in our nervous system.

       easy to access manual for healing at the crossroads of ...
    The book is an easy to read manual for healing at the crossroads of psychology and racism in the United States. From decades of lived experience and pragmatic healing consciousness, Menakem writes with kindness and clarity. White Americans are being called to task in the cultural healing of our times because of his work on'Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome'. This is done without being shamed or being rigidity. It's time to start healing the legacies of racism in our body. It's highly recommended for anyone who wants to embrace clean pain and cultural healing.

       Help is on the way
    I was convinced that African Americans live in a trauma basin because of historical impacts of slavery and contemporary assaults of injustice and deprivation. I wanted to launch a meaningful community-based response and I engaged some highly esteemed Black Psychologists who brought great insights and hearts of commitment to the task. Our efforts were improved in a powerful way after reading this work. I would like to buy out the national stock and give it to everyone. This is a well written treatment of trauma as it exists in bodies of every description across our land. A breakthrough in a key relationship was created by my reflection on the concepts of clean and dirty pain. You should get it. It's time to read it. Pass it on.

    If you want to grow your self and communal knowledge, stop whatever you are doing and pick up a copy of this book. Resmaa's work encourages us to tune in so that we can more fully understand ourselves, our wounds and our desperate need for healing.
