Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The body remembers traumatic experiences, and this is illustrated by the following case of Charlie and the Dog. Charlie’s traumatic event was when his dog died. His resulting somatic and psychological symptoms were resolved through the help of a therapist. #2 The Body Remembers is about the effects of fear on the body, and how we can help our clients overcome their fears. It is based on the theory that our bodies react to fear in the absence of actual threat by becoming paralyzed. #3 The brain and body process, remember, and perpetuate traumatic events. Understanding how they process, remember, and perpetuate traumatic events can help us treat the traumatized body and mind. #4 PTSD is a complex psychobiological condition that develops in response to a traumatic event. It can develop in anyone who faces a traumatic event, but it is not common. It is typically seen in those who have been prepared for the stress of the event, responded well to it, and had prior experience with stress.
