I’ll make this short. Van der Kolk shares some of his theories on trauma, however he shares traumas of his clients that can triggering without any warning. I was recommended this book by a therapist, and I don’t think laypeople are the right audience.

I don’t recommend this book. The trauma stories were too much.
