When The Body Bears the Burden made its debut in 2001, it changed the way people thought about trauma, PTSD, and the treatment of chronic stress disorders. Now in its third edition, this revered text offers a fully updated and revised analysis of the relationship between mind, body, and the processing of trauma. Here, clinicians will find detailed, thorough explorations of some of neurobiology’s fundamental tenets, the connections between mind, brain, and body, and the many and varied ways that symptoms of traumatic stress become visible to those who know to look for them.
This book identifies the ways that the sudden helplessness and terror of trauma induce changes in brain function, and the effects these changes can have on muscles, digestion, blood pressure, and many other body systems.

This book identifies the ways that the sudden helplessness and terror of trauma induce changes in brain function, and the effects these changes can have on muscles, digestion, blood pressure, and many other body systems. It gives doctors, counsellors and other workers the information to offer new hope to anyone suffering from whiplash, PTSD or a history of abuse. The author describes the unexpectedly broad spectrum of causes of psychological trauma. Having observed a high incidence of childhood trauma in chronic pain sufferers who had been through “minor” vehicle accidents, he explored the relationship between trauma and chronic pain, developing in the process an understanding that helps patients and clinicians to achieve effective treatment.

Embodied self-awareness is the practice and science of our ability to feel our movements, sensations, and emotions. As infants, before we can speak or conceptualize, we learn to move toward what makes us feel good and away from what makes us feel bad. Our ability to continue to develop and cultivate awareness of such body-based feelings and understanding is essential for learning how to successfully navigate in the physical and social world, as well as for avoiding injury and stress. Embodied self-awareness is made possible by neuromotor and neurohormonal pathways between the brain and the rest of the body, pathways that serve the function of using information about body state to maintain optimal health and well being. When these pathways become compromised, primarily as a result of physical injury or psychological stress and trauma, we lose our ability to monitor and regulate our basic body functions. This book explains the neurological basis of embodied self-awareness, how to enhance self-awareness, and how to regain it after injury or trauma.

Allegations of ritual abuse are universal and mental health professionals, theologians, law enforcers, scholars, victim advocates, and others struggle to comprehend the enormity of the devastation left in the wake of these heinous acts. Ritual Abuse in the Twenty-first Century addresses the concerns that naturally evolve from any discussion of this phenomenon from the perspectives of professionals, advocates, and survivors from around the world (eight countries, seven states in the U.S.) * How valid are the survivors' stories? * Is there evidence? * What are the consequences of these acts to the individual and society? * Why have these allegations been ignored or discredited whenever they have surfaced? The authors of these chapters respond to these and other questions in an effort to illustrate the constellation of psychological, health, legal, criminal, societal, and spiritual ramifications of ritual abuse. Chapters address current issues including ritually based crime, civil suits involving allegations of ritual abuse, that are universal. The value of understanding ritual trauma for diagnostic and treatment applications is discussed.

With an emphasis upon cognitive-behavioral interventions, it provides resources and guidance for any psychotherapist working with any client.

Here is a timely response to the research findings of the last decade. It focuses on the need to understand just how prevalent trauma is in the lives of our students, how it impacts the brain, subsequent learning, and behavior. This book also details what educators can do not only to prevent further harm to our students, but also to intervene in ways that give them a promising future.
