Books by Others: Heal the Body, Heal the Mind

by Susanne Babbel PhD

This compassionate guide takes trauma survivors on a supportive and healing journey toward well-being by practicing the somatic exercises and mind-body interventions.

Traumatic events can leave mental and physical scars—but these scars don’t have to define you. When trauma occurs, the logical mind is hijacked and physiology takes over in an effort to protect you. This leaves an imprint—your body wants to ensure that nothing like that will ever happen again. Being reminded of a traumatic event can trigger these automatic responses, leaving you feeling paralyzed or unable to take action. This book will help you understand why and how unresolved trauma can infiltrate all aspects of your life, including your mind and body—even when you’re not aware of its influence.
