Based on the basic understanding that trauma will come to all of us sooner or later, today's special guest Dr. James Gordon teaches us that we all have the capacity to heal ourselves, and how to restore hope. His book The Transformation represents the culmination of his fifty years as a mind-body medicine pioneer and an advocate of integrative approaches to overcoming psychological trauma and stress. It is the first comprehensive, evidence-based program for reversing the psychological and biological damage caused by trauma.
Offering inspirational stories, eye-opening research, and innovative prescriptive support, the book makes accessible for the first time the methods that Dr. Gordon—with the help of his faculty of 160, and 6,000 trained clinicians, educators, and community leaders—has developed and used to relieve the suffering of hundreds of thousands of adults and children around the world.
Dr. James Gordon is a Harvard-trained psychiatrist, former researcher at the National Institute of Mental Health and, Chair of the White House Commission on Complementary and Alternative Medicine Policy, and a clinical professor of Psychiatry and Family Medicine at Georgetown Medical School. He authored or edited ten previous books and has written often for numerous popular publications including The New York Times and The Washington Post, as well as in professional journals. He has served as an expert for 60 Minutes, the Today show, Good Morning America, Nightline, CNN and MSNBC and many others.
