Trying Something New!
This week I read from the book The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma by Bessel Van der Kolk, M.D. This episode, I read from the beginning of the book about contextualizing the authors experience in psychology/psychiatry and preliminary explanations of the body’s physiological response to different levels of trauma: social engagement for the warning signs of danger, fight or flight for the presence of imminent danger, and collapse for the realization of a continued dangerous state of existence.
