    Wonderful! Trauma theory in digestible bites!

    I recently read Babette Rothschild's new book 'The Body Remembers: The Psychophysiology of Trauma and Trauma Treatment.' In this book Ms. Rothschild does a wonderful job of explaining complex psychobiological processes in easy to understand, digestible bites. This book provides a solid theoretical framework for the close relationship between psychobiology, implicit and explicit memory storage and retrieval, and trauma processing. Ms. Rothschild's book also thoroughly explains the importance of 'body memories' in trauma processing and discusses many ways in which to help clients both elicit and integrate dysfunctionally stored cellular memories. By providing a concise, understandable and useful overview of trauma theory, this book serves to help close the learning gap between theory and application. In fact, I have recommended that this book be used as one of the texts for clinical theory classes in the graduate program where I am privileged to teach. I also believe this book would be very helpful to trauma clinicians in general. No matter the general theoretical foundation of the clinician (ie: psychoanalytic, CBT, etc.) this book provides valuable information that informs trauma practice. In addition, Ms. Rothschild offers many graphics, charts, case studies, and exercises that could be very helpful in explaining the 'trauma response' and trauma therapy to clients, families, students, supervisors, and policy makers. As by now you have no doubt guessed - I highly recommend this book.
