The Psychophysiology of Trauma and Trauma Treatment
by Babette Rothschild
New York, Norton & Company, 2000.
Babette Rothschild, who is a social worker and psychotherapist working with trauma victims since 1976, composed a book about the physiology of trauma and trauma treatment with the clarifying title ‘the Body Remembers’. According to the introduction, she did this to bridge the gap between the neuroscience of traumatology and clinical practice, and the gap between verbal psychotherapies and body-oriented psychotherapy. As a body-psychotherapist she will be heavily interested in the psychophysiology of traumatisation, and the book is a reflexion of that.
