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. "

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Lene R. on Feb. 26 2010
Format: Paperback
Babette understands PTSD which empowers her to empower others. Her new book 8 Keys to Safe Trauma Recovery can be described as a CARE FULL masterpiece. Careful in giving the "reading client" safe choices to customize what helps them right now at whatever step of the journey they are at. Hard to express in words Babette's genuine care that emanates from the pages to lend comfort, hope and healing to her readers. She is full of care and it can be felt.
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!

Format: Paperback
I heartily recommend and approve of this book. I like the blend of common sense, sound science and practical exercises.
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.

Best book yet for beginning trauma recovery. I'm a psychologist and I'm using this with clients - it gives them a guide to the process, in a sensible way.

The Safest Key to Trauma Recovery April 8 2010
By Helen Simmonds - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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 in their healing journey from trauma.

Fine resource for people with traumatic experience Jan. 29 2010
By Sandra Shapiro - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have two copies of "8 Keys" in my office to lend out to patients. One patient recently commented that it was easy to locate the sections that felt immediately resonant with his experience and skip past sections that didnt seem relevant. Other people will obviously make different selections. I like the book for its clear and accessible writing (Babette Rothschild's gift), and the balance between being of comfort + support and straightforward psychoeducation. I think the book is an excellent office resource for clinicians.

Safety: An important consideration Dec 2 2010
By Rachelle Elias, LMFT - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Babette Rothchild's self-help book on trauma, 8 Keys to Safe Trauma Recovery, is indeed safe to read without re-stimulating traumatic memories. As a clinician, I feel confident recommending it to my clients as an adjunct to psychotherapy. It is written simply and clearly, but without talking down to the reader, and offers helpful tools that are practical and reassuring. Ms. Rothchild has a gift for making the reader feel understood. She includes enough self-disclosure to assure the reader that her advice is not only academic, but comes from personal experience. I recommend this book even for those clients who are not in trauma, but need help with developing skills for tolerating intense emotions. It is written with empathy, kindness, and above all, common sense!
