This review is from: Healing Developmental Trauma: How Early Trauma Affects Self-Regulation, Self-Image, and the Capacity for Relationship (Paperback)
A fascinating book detailing the NARM process to help heal problems in adulthood that are the result of early trauma, especially birth and prebirth issues. Laurence Heller builds on the shoulders of giants - especially Peter Levine's Somatic Experiencing work - to create processes to help heal people's long held wounds. As someone who has spent the last 20 years trying to find the source of continual ill-health, emotional problems and a capacity to attract drama in my life, this work is, I hope, the last bend in the road. In my own work with clients I see again and again that many presenting with anxiety, issues with relationships, a dissatisfaction with life, or chronic illness had some form of birth trauma. It is likely to take months if not years of therapy to resolve these critical issues (in my case a premature birth, several weeks in an incubator and problems bonding with my mother at birth and later through life), but I feel confident that this research in the field of birth trauma is groundbreaking work that will help many.
