Practices for Safe and Transformative Healing
David A. Treleaven
Discover a groundbreaking, practical approach to mindfulness meditation in "Trauma-Sensitive Mindfulness". From schools to therapists' offices, mindfulness has become mainstream. However, trauma affects most of us at some point in our lives, which means someone practicing mindfulness may be struggling with trauma. While mindfulness can reduce stress, practiced without awareness of trauma, it can exacerbate symptoms. Drawing on a decade of research experience, author David Treleaven provides insight into how mindfulness can help trauma recovery, covering the role of attention, arousal, relationship, dissociation, and social context. This practical guide offers 36 modifications for survivors to safely practice mindfulness for transformative results.
