Babette helps by lessening the shame..."to recognize that not only are war wounds not shameful, they are ALL honorable, whether or not they can be seen."
This book is highly recommended as a gentle, yet powerful weapon in the war of your life...overcoming PTSD. Buy it and read it mindfully...with a highlighter in hand!
Rothschild's writing is accessible without being simplistic, and respectful both of the readers' sensibilities and of their resourcefulness.
As a trauma therapist and supervisor I am familiar with her professional books, especially The Body Remembers: The Psychophysiology of Trauma and Trauma Treatment (Norton Professional Books) and I glad to have this to recommend to clients and to supervisees who are working with people affected by trauma.
It will be useful too to the friends and family of trauma survivors in understanding them and knowing how to help.
There is also some sensible advice for trauma survivors who in therapy or counselling, and indeed some useful pointers for practitioners.
