Body Awareness Workbook for Trauma by Julie Brown Yau.

There is a piercing epidemic of trauma in the world today.

Every few days there are reports of another tragedy, of more lives lost to gun violence, loved ones and family homes lost to floods, hurricanes, or fires.

Women have come to speak openly about the trauma of sexual assault, and we are finally talking openly about the trauma inflicted on people of color, on transgender people, and immigrants.

But now that this trauma is out in the open, how do we heal?

For years, we’ve understood the connection between trauma and mental health issues, such as depression and anxiety.

But somatic psychology has recently shown that our bodies hold on to trauma, and trauma can manifest in physical symptoms, such as pain, hormone imbalance, sexual dysfunction, and addiction.

In addition, we now know that developmental trauma—trauma that emerges when basic childhood needs are not met—can result in profound emotional stress and lead to serious diseases.

Building on this knowledge, Body Awareness Workbook for Trauma offers simple skills for connecting and calming your body, balancing your emotions, and rewiring old patterns of reactivity for better self-regulation.

The mind-body approach in this book is designed to guide you away from Complex PTSD, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and trauma and toward post traumatic growth.

Using these exercises, you’ll learn how to reconnect and relate to your body—and yourself as a whole—in a new and healthy way.

If you’re ready to move past your trauma and rediscover your body’s innate capacity for healing, growth, vitality, and joy, this unique guide will help light the way.
