We don’t get taught about how our bodies respond to negative life events, so it can be confusing and frightening when it feels like we have lost control of our bodies. This book is an easy to read comic-book style guide to understanding how the body reacts when it has experienced either a small ‘t’ trauma (any event that causes fear, helplessness, and overwhelms our ability to cope) or a big “T” trauma (like a life threatening event).  Some people share this book with family members to help them understand too.

“When something traumatic happens to us, we dissociate and our bodies shut down their normal processes. This unique comic explains the strange nature of trauma and how it confuses the brain and affects the body. With wonderful artwork, cat and mouse metaphors, essential scientific facts, and a healthy dose of wit, the narrator reveals how trauma resolution involves changing the body’s physiology and describes techniques that can achieve this, including Trauma Releasing Exercises that allow the body to shake away tension, safely releasing deep muscular patterns of stress and trauma.”
