      Is approaching the study of emotions in a fascinating and engaging way and yet the vocab and density and within my range, which is limited I m enjoying learning about how kids develop emotionally,from a physiological perspective, so like how they literally have not developed all the brain structures and areas to make all the complex decisions put forth to them nice reminders for an impatient mom.

    4. Joan says:

      Mediocre.Dr Van Der Kolk and Peter Levine are much better authors and experts on the subject of trauma and stress.

    5. Cheryl says:

      Practical, down to earth advise There are simple things that can be done to heal and deal with emotional trauma If you feel your feelings BIG, the way I do, there is help in this book One of the tragedies of relationship trauma is that it can make us UNABLE to take in caring and support from others with the result that we reject the good that may be coming our way Not an excuse, just insight What is easy for others is hard, if not impossible for me.

    6. Tyler says:

      I was sceptical of the publisher s definition as Self Help Recovery, because of all the spiritual inspirational ego trips I associate with the genre, but this book really hits home with every sentence It stirs up a lot memories, but I guess that s the idea It was appropriate that I started reading it on Mother s Day.I m totally loaning this book to my sister when I m done with it.

    7. Kathleen Hanes says:

      Broadly based discussions on effects of early stress, trauma, etc on later stability and peace of mind wordy, butworth the read Not limited to ACOA issues.

    8. Kathy says:
