The Transformation represents the culmination of Dr. Gordon's fifty years as a practitioner, teacher and advocate of integrative approaches to overcoming psychological trauma and stress.
Offering eye-opening research, innovative prescriptive support, and inspirational stories, The Transformation for the first time gives the reading public clear guidance in the methods that Dr. Gordon has developed and that he and his team have used to relieve the suffering of hundreds of thousands of children and adults around the world.
Dr. Gordon's work is grounded in a basic understanding:
- Trauma will come to all of us, sooner or later
- Each of us has the capacity to understand and heal ourselves
In The Transformation, Dr. Gordon delivers an inviting narrative that allows readers to easily use his step-by-step evidence-based program—which so many others have used—to reverse the psychological and biological damage that trauma causes, and to restore their hope and heal themselves.
This is a field-tested approach to whole health.
In his role as the founder and executive director of The Center for Mind-Body Medicine (CMBM), Dr. Gordon has created and implemented what may well be the world’s largest and most effective program for healing population-wide trauma.
He and his 130 international faculty have brought this program to populations as diverse as refugees from wars in the Balkans, the Middle East, and Africa; firefighters and U. S. military personnel and veterans and their families; student/ parent/teacher school shooting survivors; and Native American children and their families—as well as stressed out professionals, stay-at-home mothers, inner-city children, White House officials, health professionals and medical students, and people struggling with severe emotional and physical illnesses.
