Overcoming trauma through yoga : reclaiming your body by David Emerson( Book )

9 editions published between 2010 and 2017 in English and Dutch and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Survivors of trauma whether abuse, accidents, or war can end up profoundly wounded, betrayed by their bodies that failed to get them to safety and that are a source of pain. In order to fully heal from trauma, a connection must be made with oneself, including one s body. The trauma-sensitive yoga described in this book moves beyond traditional talk therapies that focus on the mind, by bringing the body actively into the healing process. This allows trauma survivors to cultivate a more positive relationship to their body through gentle breath, mindfulness, and movement practices. " Overcoming Trauma through Yoga "is a book for survivors, clinicians, and yoga instructors who are interested in mind/body healing. It introduces trauma-sensitive yoga, a modified approach to yoga developed in collaboration between yoga teachers and clinicians at the Trauma Center at Justice Resource Institute, led by yoga teacher David Emerson, along with medical doctor Bessel van der Kolk. The book begins with an in-depth description of trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), including a description of how trauma is held in the body and the need for body-based treatment. It offers a brief history of yoga, describes various styles of yoga commonly found in Western practice, and identifies four key themes of trauma-sensitive yoga. Chair-based exercises are described that can be incorporated into individual or group therapy, targeting specific treatment goals, and modifications are offered for mat-based yoga classes. Each exercise includes trauma-sensitive language to introduce the practice, as well as photographs to illustrate the poses. The practices have been offered to a wide range of individuals and groups, including men and women, teens, returning veterans, and others. Rounded out by valuable quotes and case stories, the book presents mindfulness, breathing, and yoga exercises that can be used by home practitioners, yoga teachers, and therapists as a way to cultivate awareness, tolerance, and an increased acceptance of the self.

Yoga & the traumatized body : a workshop for clinicians and other heath care providers( Visual )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Because trauma affects the body's physiology, and because traumatic memories are often stored somatically, leaders in the field are increasingly insisting that trauma treatment must incorporate the body. This workshop will introduce trauma-sensitive yoga as a treatment for trauma used at the Trauma Center of Brookline, Massachusetts and described by the authors of "Overcoming Trauma through Yoga". In this two-day training, clinicians will learn yoga techniques that can be introduced into a typical one-to-one therapy or small group session. We will present a range of simple practices from seated breathing to some gentle bending and twisting that will give the clinician or healthcare provider a new set of tools to address some of the most fundamental and persistent symptoms of PTSD such as feeling totally overwhelmed by sensation, disembodied, dissociated, powerless and more. The Training Team will also provide clinicians and other providers with some self-care techniques, recognizing that the work of being with severely traumatized clients on the path to healing is extremely challenging and requires special attention to one's own health and well-being
