Trauma can change the way you feel about, and in, your body. During a traumatic experience, your body tries to keep you safe, courageously and imperfectly attempting to manage the unmanageable by working to separate you from danger and pain. Even if you understand why something happened, how it happened, and what to do if it happens again, it can still be difficult to move on because your body remembers-and it reminds you again and again through deeply physical symptoms. Considering this, your body may be your most valuable resource in recovery. In this workbook, renowned trauma therapist Catherine Cook-Cottone provides a step-by-step, sequential process for embodied healing that will teach you to work through your trauma, reconnect to your body, and begin thinking about what is next in your embodied path forward. - Filled with over 100 embodied practices, worksheets, and meditations, you'll learn how to: - Befriend your body and build your inner resources for healing - Be with and work with your trauma memories and symptoms - Work with difficult sensations, emotions, cognitions, and reactions in partnership with your body - Reconnect to your body's wisdom - Listen to your body and heart with love and compassion - Be in relationship with your trauma True healing comes from reconnecting with your body. It is courageous work that requires commitment and practice over time to create a new way of being. By taking this journey, healing is possible.
