The Body Keeps the Score

By | Blog, Member News | No Comments
The Body Keeps The Score (Bessel van der Kolk)

The Body Keeps the Score will surely be considered a classic among the texts on human trauma, and human nature more generally. Although van der Kolk is writing about Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) broadly, he gives (justifiably) a significant emphasis to developmental (in-utero, infant and early childhood) trauma, as this is perhaps the primary source of trauma for many.

Four Books That Help Explain Babies

By | Blog, Member News | No Comments
The saying that ‘all babies are different’ has become a bit of a cliché, though there is a truth to it and it does explain – at least in part – why there is no technique that works for every baby, all the time.
