The psychiatrist James Gordon knows a thing or two about trauma, and not just the kind experienced by individuals. As the director of the Center for Mind-Body Medicine, he works with the kind of trauma that affects entire populations--think Kosovo, Gaza, or Pine Ridge.
How would a therapist even begin the healing process? That question and many more are answered in Dr. Gordon's book The Transformation: Discovering Wholeness and Healing After Trauma.
It reveals many of the techniques he's used over 50 years in the field.
The author joins us to share details from his work and his book.
