Childhood Trauma


Bessel van der Kolk is a Boston-based psychiatrist noted for his research in the area of post-traumatic stress since the 1970s. His work focuses on the interaction of attachment, neurobiology and developmental aspects of trauma’s effects on people. His major publication, the New York Times bestseller 'The Body Keeps the Score', talks about how the role of trauma in psychiatric illness has changed over the past 20 years, what we have learned about the ways the brain is shaped by traumatic experiences, how traumatic stress is a response of the entire body and how that knowledge is beginning to be integrated into psychotherapy.
