Overview

Rhythm is one of the most important components of our survival and well-being. It governs our moods, sleep, respiration, and digestion, and is profoundly tied to our relationships with friends and family. But what happens when these rhythms are disrupted by traumatic events? How can balance be restored in ways that integrate the complex needs of mind, body, and spirit? What insights do eastern, natural, and modern western healing traditions have to offer, and how can practitioners put these lessons to use? Clients walk through the door with chronic physical and mental health problems as a result of complex traumatic events--how can clinicians make a quick and skillful connection with their clients' needs and offer integrative mind/body methods they can rely upon?

Rhythms of Recovery answers these questions and provides clinicians with effective, time-tested tools for alleviating the destabilizing effects of traumatic events. In the new edition, readers will find practical methods, illuminated by clinical vignettes, for integrating psychotherapies with somatics and bodywork, yoga, nutrition, herbs, psychedelic medicines, and more. The new edition also draws out the ways in which culture, social justice, and feminism intersect with the integrative medicine revolution in mental health. For mental health practitioners and students interested in integrating the art and science of complementary and integrative health, this deeply appealing book provides a comprehensive guide.
