Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Have Bessel van der Kolk takes you on his journey and discoveries of what trauma is. Essential resource for anyone who really wants to understand, including those who have been traumatized. Caution this is a straight shooter and describes events, emotions, findings that are difficult to read at times. It will unconsciously raise feelings, emotions, thoughts and even memories that have laid buried. Read this book slowly and return to section as you need. One of the top trauma and psychology books I have ever come across. Helped realize, understand and appreciate the struggles that exist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential for Trauma Therapists This work is essential for trauma therapists. It reviews the etiology of trauma, it's effects, and common modalities of treatment. One area for improvement if the author were to revise the text: Discussing the now-prevalent use of Cognitive Processing Therapy in the field of PTSD treatment.
