This is a really good first book to read if you have PTSD or suspect you do The author writes clearly and succinctly so it's easy to understand even if you have attention problems There are no detailed accounts of traumatic events so it is less triggering than other books on trauma The exercises come in the form of self uizzes which are short helpful and powerful I have had to be careful not to overwhelm myself answering some of the uestions but there is a lot in the book about pacing yourself to avoid being flooded The author has a caring and compassionate tone; I felt understood and supported by her as I was readingI almost skipped the chapter in the book on spirituality because I'm not interested in that stuff right now but I'm glad that I didn't It was completely non denominational and general and it helped me be find a balanced attitude towards spiritual experience She advocates remaining open to heightenedspiritual states but not using transcendence to override or blot out painful feelings which is something I've done or tried to do in the pastThe author suggests a lot of caution regarding taking psych meds to help with PTSD although she acknowledges that there is a place for them She is much less wary of supplements which bothers me it was the only thing that bothered me about the book since they are not proven to be effectiveWith no other caveats this is a wonderful book that I found very helpful I appreciate the obvious love and care that went into it I loved this book I related very well to most of the material covered and it reminded me of some things I learned in therapy The exercises in the book were great Okay so I didn't find all of it helpful but still giving it 5 stars bc it was THE most helpful book on trauma and healing that I have ever read It never felt like Cori was wasting the reader's time by overexplaining a point The book is thorough and covers a wide range of topics relevant to trauma while being concise and providing actionable steps As someone recovering from trauma I have read so many self help books too many dwell in the abstract or in contrast spend too much time on the specific experiences of the author This book manages to walk the fine line between psychological theory and personal experiences with care and thought I learned new concepts from it containment v carthasis for example and received a clearer understanding of ideas I had previously known Cori does at times dive a bit too deeply into new age spirituality for my comfort but importantly she does not let it overwhelm the text and practices self restraint that prevents the book from getting preachy If I could only recommend one self help book it would be this one Jasmin Cori is a great psychotherapist who wrote this book in the way like she talks to youThis book has the ability of deep penetration into your mind to change and to pull you out of a bad situation inch by inchIt is really helpful for allIt’s wonderful for the one who experience some difficulty in their life I had read most of this book before as I use it in a class but there was a chapter or two that I don't assign and hadn't read now I have It's a useful book for survivors with practical suggestions for supporting one's healing using diverse approaches from psychotherapy to somatics to journaling to spiritual practices It works well for my students too very approachable language Excellent bookVery user friendlyApproaches the subject from a very uniue perspective Author may be Pagan not sure? Very empowering in that it shows the trauma survivor they are not alone in their symptoms feelings or perceived handicaps Empowering in that it gives the survivor TOOLS to assist in working through the very specific challenges a trauma survivor experiencesAnyone who feels as though they can't get past something difficult or traumatic in their lives should read this bookINVALUABLE I picked this book up for work and really think it's great both for its gentle tone and practical advice I recommend it to many people as an easy to understand introduction to the topic of trauma especially for people who may have experienced it and don't have the context to understand their experience As a bonus it's nice that it's generally non triggering for survivors but it is clear that she knows her subject well This is a good read for in my opinion anybody who's lived as a person in society If you haven't had any big T traumas or what people often think of when they think of trauma as near death experience war or assault I'd still recommend it for little t traumas that pretty much every human experiences Otherwise I thought it could have used a bit of elaboration on the point of boundaries since that is so crucial to anyone who's had abuseassault experiences but there's always something Less science y option than The Body Keeps The Score for people looking to learn about healing their trauma It has fewer stories of trauma which can be triggering and reflection prompts TBKTS is important and a fantastic book but I recommend this one a little often to my therapy clients Cori has a warmth to her writing THANK YOU for writing a book about trauma that doesn't revolve around detailed triggering stories This book is practical detailed and helpful Good starting point if you're having freuent emotional flashbacks
