Topic sexual abuse
The body keeps the score - mind, brain and body in the transformation of trauma
Why can you not necessarily remember anything? What happens with traumatic experiences in the brain? Do adults and children react differently to bad events? Is it possible to recover from trauma? Why does my body react to some things, although I do not know the cause?
note: Regardless of the type and cause of the trauma highly recommended.
