Trauma is part of life. Military members and veterans, Police, Fire and Dispatchers and their families experience traumatic events and suffer the difficult symptoms of anxiety, insomnia, anger/aggression and conflicted relationships. Others experience sexual and physical abuse. Some people are raised with a parent or caretaker with alcohol or drug abuse/dependence issues. The brain, in its attempt to process and store memories can get 're-wired'. This book is a great resource to understand the brain and how that brain can heal.
This is a wonderful book that really provides couples with the foundational skills for a happy, healthy and connected relationship. I recommend this book and use it with the couples I see in my practice.
