Being In My Body explores a topic that has only recently been connected with trauma at all, and is still largely circumvented by modern medicine, insurance agencies, and the pharmaceutical industry. It has to do with something the experts are now referring to as developmental trauma. Whatever we call it, it profoundly shapes our physical, interpersonal and mental health. It has the potential to disconnect us from others, hinder the development of healthy narcissism, and make safety in intimate relationships virtually unachievable until it is properly dealt with.
Whether you identify with the idea of not being able to identify or connect with your emotional self, you have had trouble maintaining deep and nourishing connections in your closest relationships, or you have a friend or loved one who has been touched by some kind of trauma, this book offers a way to integrate what you know and move you forward in the ways you relate with yourself and the people in your life.
Toni's message is clear: Caring for and being connected with the body is a prerequisite for a compassionate, trauma-informed society and a safer, saner world.
