Trauma-Sensitive Mindfulness: Practices for Safe and Transformative Healing ハードカバー – 2018/2/13
A seminal work of outstanding scholarship. . . . [I]mpressively informative, exceptionally well written, organized and presented so as to be of enduring value for both academia and the non-specialist general reader with an interest in the subject.-- "Midwest Book Review"
As soon as I finished reading this book, I began suggesting it to friends who are counselors as well as yoga teachers. . . . This book is an exceptional resource for therapists that includes case examples which offer an excellent overview of trauma and its effects. . . . I am grateful for the work that Treleaven is doing and that he has shared this insightful, caring, and valuable book.-- "Psych Central"
David Treleaven's book offers a timely and important contribution to understanding the scope and efficacy of mindfulness practices...Treleaven has carried out both academic research and clinical investigations over decades into how to make mindfulness safe for trauma survivors, and this is the fruit of his work...This is an informative and readable book, which is evidence-based, full of scholarly research, as well as lively illustrative case stories and important, practical therapeutic wisdom.-- "Human Givens"
David's writing connects our inner and outer work. It locates mindfulness amidst the real, lived experiences of the people practicing. He acknowledges the trauma that so many of us experience, and the healing that so many need. And, as few in the meditation world do, David reveals the reality and impact of social inequities, and how they are at play in mindfulness training and practice, and trauma healing.--Staci Haines, author of Healing Sex: A Mind-Body Approach to Healing Sexual Trauma
In this highly readable, sensitive, and respected volume, David Treleaven illuminates the hidden risks of mindfulness and meditation for those who have backgrounds of unresolved trauma. At the same time he offers practical ad protective strategies which greatly expands the reach of these vital practices to populations that previously were unable to benefit from them. Teachers of mindful practices, including meditation and yoga, as well as helping professionals of all sorts who endeavor to weave mindful practice into their work, will all find the wisdom in this book essential for helping traumatized students and clients.--Babette Rothschild, MSW, author, The Body Remembers, Volumes 1 & 2
Meditation is sweeping through our culture, offering unprecedented potential for healing our psyches and transforming consciousness. Yet, like all powerful processes, if not well understood it can be misused and cause damage. This is particularly the case for those who are living with trauma. In his groundbreaking exploration of meditation and trauma, David Treleaven looks at this issue through multiple lenses, drawing on current research about the physiology and psycho-neurology of unprocessed trauma, and shining a light on the potential impact of a well articulated, popular, and highly regarded form of mindfulness meditations called Vipassana, or Insight meditation. This is essential and fascinating reading for meditation teachers, mental health practitioners, and all those who have suffered from trauma and want to engage on a meditative path in a wise and healing way.--Tara Brach, PhD, author, Radical Acceptance and True Refuge

I came away from reading this book with not just an understanding of why my body suddenly went haywire when I started a regular daily mindfulness practice, but also an understanding of what as a mindfulness teacher, I can look out for and be aware of when teaching mindfulness to groups and individuals.
When I started my mindfulness teacher training, and with it a consistent daily mindfulness practice, I had no idea I had hidden trauma in my body. Like many who start to explore mindfulness I knew I had a stressful period in my life coming up and I hoped mindfulness would help. It wasn’t until I started my mindfulness teacher training and a regular consistent daily practice that my body started to unravel. It wasn’t until 2 years later and nearing the end of my training that a visiting tutor said to me “I’ve been hearing what you’ve been saying in the breaks and it sounds like you have PTSD, I wonder if it’s something you’d benefit from seeing someone about”. Where as other mindfulness tutors had told me to “take it to the cushion” or “continue with the practice”, this tutor noticed my physiological responses while teaching and paid attention to what I was saying.
I believe that if this book had been available to those other tutors over my two year training there is a fair chance I would not have developed PTSD, and the dysregulation of my system, uncovered and exacerbated by my mindfulness practice, would not have become entrenched in the way it did. Whilst I would like to think that I was the only mindfulness trainee teacher to have this experience, attendance at conferences introduced me to others like me, from all the major UK mindfulness teacher trainer universities who have had similar experiences. Not to mention all the participants who drop out of mindfulness courses, or suddenly leave retreats having had a ‘bad experience’ with the practice. I can therefore not recommend this book highly enough to all mindfulness teachers no matter how much teaching experience they have.
Chapter 1 - the ubiquity of trauma. I took a long time to own my PTSD because I felt I had no reason to have it. The wide ranging coverage of the causes of trauma and the prevalence of it in society finally helped me understand how wide spread it is. Most people have some trauma trapped in their body, and if they practice mindfulness enough, it’s likely to be tapped into at some point.
Chapter 2 - meeting the moment, mindfulness and traumatic stress. A comprehensive explanation of why mindfulness is a “double edged sword” when it comes to trauma healing, and so should be wielded with utmost care.
Chapter 3 - shaped by the past, a brief history of mindfulness and trauma. One of the concerns among UK mindfulness teachers is how participants in groups and mindfulness teachers, are disproportionately white middle class. This chapter helps shed some light on why a whole spectrum of of society might - quite rightly - not feel safe in mindfulness classes, and how mindfulness teachers can gain a much needed appreciation of the life and indeed generational context participants bring with them.
Chapter 4 - the brain and body in trauma and mindfulness. An excellent explanation using the major trauma theories from Levine, Porges, van der Kolk, etc to explain how mindfulness meditation can bring to the surface some of those “dark night of the soul” or more unpleasant experiences such as heightened anxiety, fear or depersonalization.
Part II: the five principles of trauma-sensitive mindfulness
Using examples from practice, each chapter highlights different areas where mindfulness teachers can translate the awareness learnt in Part I, to practical support of participants or clients within 1:1 or group settings. The author is a ‘educator and psychotherapist those work focuses on the intersection of trauma, mindfulness and social justice’ and his experience is of working with clients individually or in couples, so most of his examples are of working in this way. However there is a whole mine of advice for group settings, whether courses, drop in sessions or retreats.
Chapter 5 - stay within the window of tolerance: the role of arousal
Chapter 6 - shift attention to support stability: avoiding the fear/immobility cycle
Chapter 7 - keep the body in mind: working with dissociation
Chapter 8 - practice in relationship: supporting safety and stability in survivors.
Chapter 9 - understanding the social context: working effectively across difference.
What this book doesn’t do. This book focuses on how to notice when mindfulness practice uncovers trauma, and how to avoid exacerbating the symptoms unintentionally through mindfulness practice. This book touches on, but doesn’t focus on how to how to ‘cure’ trauma symptoms through mindfulness practice. It does suggest that mindfulness, if used sensitivity, can be an “adjunct to trauma treatments” and does focus on how to practice with the symptoms.
When offering someone mindfulness practice, we do not know if it will uncover trauma held in the body. My only hope is that from reading this book you will realise that due to the ubiquitous nature of trauma as part of being human, it is necessary to offer that mindfulness in a way that is trauma- sensitive, to ensure that when it reveals itself, it is effectively processed and not further embedded in the practitioners physiology.
There are a few things , however, I dislike about.
The contents can be shorten by about 15 to 20%, as some of them repeat quite a bit and can get a little bit fed up at a time. It also carries some political views that I think unnecessary. Although I can see why the author put them in there, I believe as a non political book, they should stick to the facts without any personal views.
With those being said, I would buy this book again.
A practical guide as to why mindfulness can retriger trauma and how to respond to situations where this happens.
An essential addition to every mindfulness practicioner's awareness.
