Waking the Tiger by Peter Levine

Book Description

In an age of Prozac and victimhood, we are not encouraged to take control of our behavioural ailments. This book, based on the authors' years of work with stress and trauma victims, aims to pass control back to the individual and away from the treatment centre. It challenges the myth that trauma stays with you for the rest of your life, and presents powerful exercises to reconcile traumatic experiences with "normal" life. By understanding the source of trauma - whether it be by violence, loss, or natural disaster - you can pick up the psychological and physical tools to resolve and complete a natural traumatic reaction.
