Sounds True - Researchers have shown that survivors of accidents, illness, disaster, fatigue, and childhood trauma often en endure lifelong symptoms ranging from anxiety and depression to unexplained physical pain, and harmful "acting out" behaviors.

Trauma does not have to stem from a major catastrophe. Levine's breakthrough Somatic Experiencing® methods to actively overcome these challenges. It is vital that we appreciate these differences. What proves harmful over the long term to one person may be exhilarating to another.

While acknowledging that memory can be trusted, he argues that the only truly useful memories are those that might initially seem to be the least reliable: memories stored in the body and not necessarily accessible by our conscious mind.

Trauma and Memory: Brain and Body in a Search for the Living Past: A Practical Guide for Understanding and Working with Traumatic Memory - While much work has been done in the field of trauma studies to address "explicit" traumatic memories in the brain such as intrusive thoughts or flashbacks, much less attention has been paid to how the body itself stores "implicit" memory, and how much of what we think of as "memory" actually comes to us through our often unconsciously accessed felt sense.

Sounds True. Levine suggests that there are elements of truth in both camps. Written for trauma sufferers as well as mental health care practitioners, Trauma and Memory is a groundbreaking look at how memory is constructed and how influential memories are on our present state of being. Building on his 45 years of successful treatment of trauma and utilizing case studies from his own practice, Dr.
