Psychiatrist James S. Gordon pioneered a mind-body methodology widely used around the world for healing psychological trauma. His latest book, The Transformation: Discovering Wholeness and Healing After Trauma, offers a comprehensive evidence-based program anyone can use to reverse the psychological and biological damage caused by traumatic experience. Dr. Gordon interweaves the latest scientific research, inspiring recovery stories, timeless wisdom and 50 years of clinical experience to help readers suffering with PTSD to meet the challenges of healing trauma, while rediscovering joy, meaning and purpose. Dr. Gordon touched me deeply and our dialogue expanded my clinical knowledge and skills. I am recommending his book to all my patients who are struggling with the effects of trauma.
