Body Keeps the score is a book that you keep hearing about especially as mental health and trauma become more and more relevant.

Bessel Van Der Kock explains what we experience in the brain, mind and body whilst healing from trauma.


Trauma is a fact of life. Veterans and their families deal with the painful aftermath of combat; one in five Americans has been molested; one in four grew up with alcoholics; one in three couples have engaged in physical violence. Even if you haven't experienced trauma yourself it is useful to understand its effects on others and how you interact with society.
