Review

"Rothschild's brief, personable, and accessible book directly targets safe, successful recovery in a way that compels and convinces the reader. If trauma memories impact your life or that of someone you now or treat in a healthcare setting, you need this book." "Readers who have experienced traumatic events will find this a helpful tool as they work with their professional therapist." "A succinct and easy read, founded predominantly on compassion-focused and mindfulness-based approaches, this book is certainly one I would recommend to my own trauma clients... [S]traight-forward and enlightening to read."

Format: Paperback
This book is a revelation to those of us who have lived with the effects of trauma without realising its true impact. Using this highly practical and sensitively written book I have managed to write my own recovery plan and after many years of emotional and physical pain, at last feel empowered to move forward.
The puzzle of what happens to the body when trauma takes charge and the lasting and devastating effects of unresolved trauma are explained beautifully in this truly life-changing book.
The author is to be congratulated for finding a way through the complexity of trauma and putting down on paper the possibility of a way out of the maze.
I heartily recommend this to any reader who has tried in vain to live well with the after-effects of trauma and to all relevant professionals and friends who could use a wise and expert guide to help them understand the problems post-traumatic stress can generate.

Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent, highly accessible resource for anyone who has experienced and suffered trauma. I felt a huge sense of relief just holding the book in my hands and after reading the first few pages knew that someone understood the complexities of healing from trauma! If only I had been more aware and had been taught early on in my trauma recovery to trust my own high level of intuitive feelings and common sense; had listened to my body sensations and seen those "stop" signs more clearly, I could have helped myself recover from trauma so much earlier. Instead I trusted some unhelpful "professionals" rather than trusting myself and endured more suffering and trauma as a result. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is seeking help to recover from trauma and who wants to feel in-charge and empowered by their healing journey from trauma.

I want to say that while trauma itself can be very confusing I found the writing in this book transparently clear. I experienced that clarity as pleasurably reassuring and an aid to helpful learning.
The authors' tone came over to me as firm, calm, kindly and respectful. And that is healing in itself.
The structure of this book seems to me to develop organically and to touch on many, many aspects of trauma with sensible, authentic, experienced advice. And some of that advice challenges assumptions about the treatment of trauma.
I once heard a surgeon say of a new type of medical prosthesis that "it is easy to design something complicated but not something simple. I think this book has the elegance of the simple and I would have loved to have it when I first developed PTS. A very well done to Babette.

If you only ever buy one trauma recovery book, make it this one! This book has changed my life. For the first time I feel safe, present and confident that - with these 8 strategies - I can direct my own healing. I wholeheartedly recommend 'The 8 Keys' to anyone affected by / working with trauma.

Great to have a book designed for people who have experienced trauma and useful for those working with Post Traumatic Stress. Babette writes clearly and straightforwardly to help people to better manage their body's arousal system, which can go 'out of kilter' post trauma, and take back control. A useful and empowering book. Highly recommended, along with her other books on this subject.

This is a great book that was recomended to me by my psychologist.
EMDR was new to me, but the book has helped along with the EMDR work I am receiving at the moment. The book is broken down into managable chapters with case studies included that help to illustrate the methods the authour advocates. I feel that after years of suffering from PTSD this book has really helped me to begin to start dealing with trauma.

Format: Paperback
Another fantastic informative read from Babette Rothschild. It encompasses both simplicity and common sense. This is one of the best informative/self help books around for anybody who has experienced or is going through trauma in their lives. It will bring you step by step through the 8 key factors she recognises essential to ensure safe trauma recovery. I cannot praise or recommend this book enough.

I use this book with patients and veterans' groups. I have participated in Babette's workshops in past. She offers wisdom and hope to trauma sufferers. She acknowledges that some keys may not suit every person. She empowers people to choose their way through to healing.
