"In this culmination of his life s work, Peter A. Levine draws on his broad experience as a clinician, a student of comparative brain research, a stress scientist and a keen observer of the naturalistic animal world to explain the nature and transformation of trauma in the body, brain and psyche. In an Unspoken Voice is based on the idea that trauma is neither a disease nor a disorder, but rather an injury caused by fright, helplessness and loss that can be healed by engaging our innate capacity to self-regulate high states of arousal and intense emotions. Enriched with a coherent theoretical framework and compelling case examples, the book elegantly blends the latest findings in biology, neuroscience and body-oriented psychotherapy to show that when we bring together animal instinct and reason, we can become more whole human beings.

Interesting, insightful and very valuable information. At times gets too far into the weeds and the author takes unnecessary digs at Christians/Intelligent Design (it is possible to BOTH understand/accept his theory AND believe that there is an Intelligent Designer. In fact I would say that the latter directly impacted the former in a positive direction, for me at least). Regardless, it is worth the read.
