Healing Developmental Trauma

I'm reading this book Healing Developmental Trauma: How Early Trauma Affects Self Regulation, Self Image and the Capacity for Relationship by Laurence Heller, Ph.D

This is by far the best book I have read on trauma in it's ability to talk to me about SO many of the things I have struggled and wrestled with throughout my life. This book gives me explanations for why I feel the way I do and what causes these feelings. The book talks about the NARM method - Neuro Affective Relational Model. The book is also broken down into sections of Survival Styles from early and ongoing trauma -- how people adapt to survive.

I'm not finished with the book yet so I cannot discuss any solutions or how to resolve some of the issues faced by trauma survivors. I'll be back with more as I read along. Evidently, I fall into the Connection Survival Style. We have issues of dysregulation but also they talk about chronic health issues, the impact of trauma on our "energetic" boundaries, how we are easily overwhelmed and have a need to isolate and disconnect. All very relevant topics for me.

Just thought I would share.
