This book introduces different approaches to trauma, and presents a truly integrated approach to working with this experiencing trauma. Miriam does not try to present a simplistic approach, but shares her broad professional experience of working with trauma by including neuroscience, relational psychotherapy and body awareness.
She writes about the complexity of trauma in a clear way that is accessible to all and also informative to those who are more experienced. She writes with feeling and compassion, offering the reader opportunities to develop their own understanding through suggested exercises. This is part of her emphasis on the significance of the healing relationship in working through trauma.
This book is both relevant (and an enjoyable!) read to anyone who has ever experienced trauma, or who knows anyone who has.
