The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma

[Read by Lloyd James]

A pioneering researcher and one of the world's foremost experts on traumatic stress offers a bold new paradigm for healing.

Trauma is a fact of life. Veterans and their families deal with the painful aftermath of combat on a daily basis; one in five Americans have been molested; one in four grew up with alcoholics; one in three couples have engaged in physical violence. Such experiences inevitably leave traces on minds, emotions, and even on biology. Sadly, trauma sufferers frequently pass on their stress to their partners and children.

Renowned trauma expert Bessel van der Kolk has spent over three decades working with survivors. In The Body Keeps the Score, he transforms our understanding of traumatic stress, revealing how it literally rearranges the brain's wiring - specifically areas dedicated to pleasure, engagement, control, and trust. He shows how these areas can be reactivated through innovative treatments including neurofeedback, mindfulness techniques, play, yoga, and other therapies.

Based on Dr. van der Kolk's own research and that of other leading specialists, The Body Keeps the Score offers proven alternatives to drugs and talk therapy - and a way to reclaim lives.

The Telomere Effect: A Revolutionary Approach to Living Younger, Healthier, Longer
The New York Times bestselling book coauthored by the Nobel Prize winner who discovered telomerase and telomeres' role in the aging process and the health psychologist who has done original research into how specific lifestyle and psychological habits can protect telomeres, slowing disease and improving life.

Have you wondered why some sixty-year-olds look and feel like forty-year-olds and why some forty-year-olds look and feel like sixty-year-olds? While many factors contribute to aging and illness, Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn discovered a biological indicator called telomerase, the enzyme that replenishes telomeres, which protect our genetic heritage. Dr. Blackburn and Dr. Elissa Epel's research shows that the length and health of one's telomeres are a biological underpinning of the long-hypothesized mind-body connection. They and other scientists have found that changes we can make to our daily habits can protect our telomeres and increase our health spans (the number of years we remain healthy, active, and disease-free).
THE TELOMERE EFFECT reveals how Blackburn and Epel's findings, together with research from colleagues around the world, cumulatively show that sleep quality, exercise, aspects of diet, and even certain chemicals profoundly affect our telomeres, and that chronic stress, negative thoughts, strained relationships, and even the wrong neighborhoods can eat away at them.
Drawing from this scientific body of knowledge, they share lists of foods and suggest amounts and types of exercise that are healthy for our telomeres, mind tricks you can use to protect yourself from stress, and information about how to protect your children against developing shorter telomeres, from pregnancy through adolescence. And they describe how we can improve our health spans at the community level, with neighborhoods characterized by trust, green spaces, and safe streets.
THE TELOMERE EFFECT will make you reassess how you live your life on a day-to-day basis. It is the first book to explain how we age at a cellular level and how we can make simple changes to keep our chromosomes and cells healthy, allowing us to stay disease-free longer and live more vital and meaningful lives.

Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things

In Furiously Happy, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jenny Lawson explores her lifelong battle with mental illness. A hysterical, ridiculous book about crippling depression and anxiety? That sounds like a terrible idea.

But terrible ideas are what Jenny does best.

As Jenny says:

"Some people might think that being 'furiously happy' is just an excuse to be stupid and irresponsible and invite a herd of kangaroos over to your house without telling your husband first because you suspect he would say no since he's never particularly liked kangaroos. And that would be ridiculous because no one would invite a herd of kangaroos into their house. Two is the limit. I speak from personal experience. My husband says that none is the new limit. I say he should have been clearer about that before I rented all those kangaroos.


"Most of my favorite people are dangerously fucked-up but you'd never guess because we've learned to bare it so honestly that it becomes the new normal. Like John Hughes wrote in The Breakfast Club, 'We're all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it.' Except go back and cross out the word 'hiding.'"

Furiously Happy is about "taking those moments when things are fine and making them amazing, because those moments are what make us who we are, and they're the same moments we take into battle with us when our brains declare war on our very existence. It's the difference between "surviving life" and "living life". It's the difference between "taking a shower" and "teaching your monkey butler how to shampoo your hair." It's the difference between being "sane" and being "furiously happy."

Lawson is beloved around the world for her inimitable humor and honesty, and in Furiously Happy, she is at her snort-inducing funniest. This is a book about embracing everything that makes us who we are - the beautiful and the flawed - and then using it to find joy in fantastic and outrageous ways. Because as Jenny's mom says, "Maybe 'crazy' isn't so bad after all." Sometimes crazy is just right.

Playing Hurt: My Journey from Despair to Hope
For the first time ever, the popular late host of ESPN's The Sports Reporters and ABC's college football openly discusses a lifelong battle with depression.

During his three decades on ESPN and ABC, John Saunders became one of the nation's most respected and beloved sportscasters. In this moving, jarring, and ultimately inspiring memoir, Saunders discusses his troubled childhood, the traumatic brain injury he suffered in 2011, and the severe depression that nearly cost him his life. As Saunders writes,

Playing Hurt is not an autobiography of a sports celebrity but a memoir of a man facing his own mental illness, and emerging better off for the effort. I will take you into the heart of my struggle with depression, including insights into some of its causes, its consequences, and its treatments.

I invite you behind the facade of my apparently "perfect" life as a sportscaster, with a wonderful wife and two healthy, happy adult daughters. I have a lot to be thankful for, and I am truly grateful. But none of these things can protect me or anyone else from the disease of depression and its potentially lethal effects.

Mine is a rare story: that of a black man in the sports industry openly grappling with depression. I will share the good, the bad, and the ugly, including the lengths I've gone to to conceal my private life from the public.

So why write a book? Because I want to end the pain and heartache that comes from leading a double life. I also want to reach out to the millions of people, especially men, who think they're alone and can't ask for help.

John Saunders died suddenly on August 10, 2016, from an enlarged heart, diabetes, and other complications. This book is his ultimate act of generosity to help those who suffer from mental illness, and those who love them.

RESULTS FROM APPLICATION:

"I suffered for years, ever since I was a kid, from sinus pressure. It would get so bad, I couldn't even bend over to pick up a pencil!

"And as a result, I'd have migraine headaches.

"Dianetics handled the source of my headaches - the reactive mind.

"I can't explain the feeling that I had at that time. The pressure just blew. I could feel it come off my face and it was such a relief.

"I walked around for months thinking, 'Okay, when is it going to come back?

When is it going to start?' It never did. It was just gone."

- K. F.


"My marriage was headed for divorce. And even though we loved each other, something had come between us and we didn't know what it was.

"We tried everything. We went to a marriage counselor, we even went to a psychiatrist and the end result was we still were headed for divorce.

"So just when I was about to file the final papers, a close friend of ours insisted, absolutely insisted, that we try Dianetics.

"And that was when we knew what had come between us - it was the reactive mind.

"So not only did Dianetics give us the tools to save and rebuild our marriage, but we love each other more today than the day we got married."

C. L.

 

"Dianetics enabled me to realize my potentials and find the success I had always sought."

K.B., Top Investment Counselor

 

"When I was 14 my life  became an uphill struggle.  A severe injury left me with a crippling back pain 24 hours a day.  I was told I would require treatment for the rest of my life and I wold have to live with the pain.  Over the next 12 years, I Iooked everywhere for a solution.  I even became a Doctor  of Chiropractic, but still nothing could make the pain stop.   Finally, I tried Dianetics, and I found that the pain was being caused by the reactive mind.  Within a few hours I stood up and, for the first time in 12 years, the pain was gone.   Dianetics has the answers!"

S.P., Doctor of Chiropractic

 

"I had a terrible accident and fractured my neck, and as a result was in a terrific amount of pain.  The doctors did everything that they could to try and handle it, and while my neck did heal, the pain persisted.  I began to take drugs to suppress the pain, and I became hooked on drugs.   That was the end of my motorcycle racing career.

"Then I found Dianetics and I found that the pain was in fact  coming from the reactive mind, because Dianetics handled it.  And I was no longer hooked on drugs when the pain was gone.

 "I started racing motorcycles again - this was ten years after the accident - and I went right to the top in racing motorcycles here in the United States.  Then I began training others and in fact I've trained ten of the last twelve national superbike champions.  None of this would ever have happened it it wasn't for Dianetics."

K.C., Champion Motorcycle Racing Instructor
