    DescriptionIn this book, Peter Levine challenges conventional wisdom by suggesting that many of our most important communications occur in the body's 'unspoken voice'. By deciphering and making sense of this nonverbal world, he says, anyone can rebound from even a devastating trauma.

    Peter A. Levine, PhD, holds doctorates in both medical biophysics and psychology. The developer of Somatic Experiencing(R), a body-awareness approach to healing trauma, and founder of the Foundation for Human Enrichment, he conducts trainings in this work throughout the world and in various indigenous cultures. Dr. Levine was a stress consultant for NASA on the development of the space shuttle project and was a member of the Institute of World Affairs Task Force of Psychologists for Social Responsibility in developing responses to large-scale disasters and ethno-political warfare. Levine's international best seller, "Waking the Tiger: Healing Trauma, " has been translated into twenty-two languages. His recent interests include the prevention of trauma in children, and he has co-written two books, with Maggie Kline, in this area: "Trauma Through a Child's Eyes" and "Trauma-Proofing Your Kids. "Levine's original contribution to the field of Body-Psychotherapy was honored in 2010 when he received the Life Time Achievement award from the United States Association for Body Psychotherapy (USABP).

    ""In An Unspoken Voice" uses the author's experiences as a clinician and a student of comparative brain research to explore the nature and impact of trauma on the body and brain...

All of us in the therapeutic community--physicians, psychologists, therapists, aspiring healers, interested laypeople--are ever so much richer for this summation of what he himself has learned." --Gabor Mate, MD, author of "In The Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction " "Peter Levine's work is visionary common sense, pure and simple." --Laura Huxley, lifetime partner and collaborator of Aldous Huxley "Peter Levine's first book, "Waking the Tiger, "changed the world of trauma treatment: somatic therapy, specifically Somatic Experiencing(R), the name of the specific approach he developed, no longer alternative fringe practice, became a major player in the world of the mainstream psychotherapies.
