“The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma” — by Bessel van der Kolk.

A one-of-a-kind book of huge breadth and depth on the theme of #trauma and its treatment… and, given how many of us have lived through and continue to live with trauma,

this is a really tough, slightly verbose, but necessary read if you want to expand your knowledge of others and yourself.

I’d also definitely recommend it to fellow #photojournalist’s and #film #director’s (fiction and #documentary). For example, it’s one of the few psychology books briefly analyzing Bigelow’s “The Hurt Locker” protagonist.

Also, #pranayama helps. A lot.
