The body keeps the score


Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, a pioneer in trauma research and treatment, discusses his latest book, The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma. He’ll explain the neurobiology of the traumatized brain and what treatments are most effective — including yoga, theater, martial arts and more. Later, Dr. Steven Berkowitz joins the conversation as we look at what may be the number one health threat in this country—trauma.
