Van der Kolk's website: The Body Keeps The Score

Amazon: Healing Trauma book and reviews 
(one reviewer said, "Please buy this book and start loving your life. Of all the non-fiction books I've read, this is by far the best one ever.")

Pamela will help spark our interest by providing a basic overview of the book and its key takeaways, whetting our appetites for learning about how traumatic memory is stored in the brain, and  touching on some newer interventions, in addition to traditional talk therapy, to help “re-wire” the brain

Don’t miss this opportunity to discuss and learn something new about our brains, our bodies, and recovering from the impact of trauma!

Followed at 11:00 am by Caffeine for the Brain in the center auditorium, featuring Holocaust professor, Dr. Peter Hayes.
