Rhythm is one of the most important components of our survival and well-being. It governs the patterns of our sleep and respiration and is profoundly tied to our relationships with friends and family. But what happens when these rhythms are disrupted by traumatic events? Can balance be restored, and if so, how? What insights do eastern, natural, and modern western healing traditions have to offer, and how can practitioners put these lessons to use? Is it possible to do this in a way that’s culturally sensitive, multidisciplinary, and grounded in research? Clients walk through the door with chronic physical and mental health problems as a result of traumatic events—how can clinicians make quick and skillful connection with their clients’ needs and offer integrative mind/body methods they can rely upon? Rhythms of Recovery not only examines these questions, it also answers them, and provides clinicians with effective, time-tested tools for alleviating the destabilizing effects of traumatic events. For practitioners and students interested in integrating the insights of complementary/alternative medicine and 21st-century science, this deeply appealing book is an ideal guide. Rhythms of Recovery provides 10 continuing education units through the Massachusetts Mental Health Counselor Education Home study program (exam required): http://www.mamhca.org/lmhcs/home-study-program/

Rhythms of Recovery: Trauma, Nature and the Body, is a creative, scholarly dissertation about Post Traumatic Stress. Written from a holistic, cross-cultural, ecological, feminist paradigm, the core of the dissertation is a clinical handbook which reviews and integrates conventional and innovative approaches to assessment, diagnosis and treatment. Concepts of rhythm are explored in philosophical, psychophysiological and geobiological context. Approaches to clinical praxis are informed by psychology, medical anthropology, history of medicine and conventional and traditional healing systems. the author's perspectives arise out of heuristic inquiry, including state-specific research on healing. A synthesis of theory and practice are presented including theory and methods of touch, (with an analysis of the taboo of touch) and the author's concept of Somatic Empathy; the psychobiological, subtle energy field substrate of interpersonal empathy and healing. the text includes a thematic analysis of cultural and socio-political categories of illness and healing and integrates ancient myths to illuminate present categories of interpretation. Matching textual form to theoretical content, which stresses the multi-vocality of illness and healing in the context of culture, the author integrates her creative prose to complement her scholarship.
