Book Overview

What is trauma? How does it change the way our brains work? And how can we overcome it? When something traumatic happens to us, we dissociate and our bodies shut down their normal processes. This unique comic explains the strange nature of trauma and how it confuses the brain and affects the body. With wonderful artwork, cat and mouse metaphors, essential scientific facts, and a healthy dose of wit, the narrator reveals how trauma resolution involves changing the body's physiology and describes techniques that can achieve this, including Trauma Releasing Exercises that allow the body to shake away tension, safely releasing deep muscular patterns of stress and trauma.

   This is an excellent summary of research
I have a lot of training in Trauma and in the brain. This is an excellent summary of the research. It is very accessible and has suggestions for putting the insights into action to live more fully.
   Fantastic Explanation - Very Easy to Understand
This is a fantastic review of the trauma. How it begins, why the body reacts the way it does, the feelings that come from trauma including decades later... and more importantly, what to do about it. This is not a self-help book that suggests you go alone, but it does help a person suffering under trauma understand what occurs and why and when to get help. Bravo is a special occasion for Bravo to come back with a beer.
   The easiest book to learn about trauma and what people experience
Trauma is really strange, like a comic book or a graphic novel. I've been to the PTSD for a while and my therapist suggested this book. Not only did it shed light on the scary symptoms and anxiety I was experiencing, but it also helped my family members understand what I was going through. I recommend it highly.

I use this in my work as a mental health counselor to help adolescents learn more about trauma and gain a better understanding. I wish there was a hardcover version '', because I am going to use this book a lot.
This is a pamphlet-sized work, published in a 32-page format typically found with children's books, but priced at a double-digit price. It is not a full four-color press process, instead featuring muted artwork that does little to illuminate the trauma message. Although well written and illustrated, it is too important and compressed for such an important theme a format. It is neither a historical novel nor a book, resource guide or graphic reference. It is too serious and clinical to be accessible for young readers, yet too obvious to be useful to professionals. For the trauma-informed layperson, it is an interesting read, if not particularly memorable.
