Trauma and the Body: A Sensorimotor Approach to Psychotherapy

This is a well-organized, well written summary of current approaches to trauma therapy. The title is a bit misleading as the author treats sensorimotor phenomena as merely things to conversationally educate the client about, so that he or she freaks out less.
