We begin the New Year with a discussion of the well-known bestseller "The Body Keeps the Score - Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma" by Bessel van der Kolk, M.D. In this book, Dr. van der Kolk uses scientific data to show how trauma literally reshapes both the body and the brain, and explores innovative treatments that offer recovery by activating the brain's natural neuroplasticity.
If you prefer to read another book on the topic of trauma and its treatment, you are welcome to do so. Please briefly summarize and discuss your selected book with the group. A one-page summary is recommended but not required.
