Book Recommendations: Healing Trauma


I have long believed in and witnessed the mind-body connection, both in serving patients and in my own lived experience. I have a special interest in Somatic Experiencing, a practice to help release symptoms of trauma in the body, often left in the wake of distressing experiences. As such, I'm planning to continue to refine my knowledge and practice in this area of therapy by formally studying the discipline founded by Dr. Peter Levine, Ph.D. More updates on this to come...


In conversations with patients about these concepts, I have from time to time recommended Dr. Levine's book, Healing Trauma, A Pioneering Program for Restoring the Wisdom of Your Body, and Waking the Tiger, which I have read multiple times and always uncover something new with each exploration. For those of you who might wish to explore the concepts and wisdom it contains!
