The Body Keeps the Score: [brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma]

The Body Keeps the Score: [brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma]
Van der Kolk, Bessel A., 1943-

Trauma is a fact of life. Veterans and their families deal with the painful aftermath of combat on a daily basis; one in five Americans have been molested; one in four grew up with alcoholics; one in three couples have engaged in physical violence. Such experiences inevitably leave traces on minds, emotions, and even on biology. Sadly, trauma sufferers frequently pass on their stress to their partners and children. Renowned trauma expert Bessel van der Kolk has spent over three decades working with survivors. In The Body Keeps the Score, he transforms our understanding of traumatic stress, revealing how it literally rearranges the brain's wiring--specifically areas dedicated to pleasure, engagement, control, and trust. He shows how these areas can be reactivated through innovative treatments including neurofeedback, mindfulness techniques, play, yoga, and other therapies.

Y Is for Yesterday
Grafton, Sue

In 1979, four teenage boys from an elite private school sexually assault a fourteen-year-old classmate, filming the rape. Not long after, the tape goes missing, and the classmate suspected to be the thief is murdered. In the investigation that follows, one boy turns state's evidence and two of his peers are convicted--but the ringleader escapes. A decade later, one of the assailants--moody, angry, unrepentant Fritz McCabe--has been released from prison, only to have a copy of the missing tape arrive at his home with a ransom demand. The McCabes call Kinsey Millhone for help; but even as she's drawn into their family's drama, Kinsey begins to suspect that a vicious sociopath with a grudge against her is leaving traces of himself for her to find....

George and Lizzie: [a Novel]

George and Lizzie: [a Novel]
Pearl, Nancy

George and Lizzie have radically different understandings of what love and marriage should be. George grew up in a warm and loving family, his father an orthodontist, his mother a stay-at-home mom, while Lizzie grew up as the only child of two famous psychologists, who viewed her more as an in-house experiment than a child to love. Over the course of their marriage, nothing has changed, George is happy; Lizzie remains, unfulfilled. When a shameful secret from Lizzie's past resurfaces, she'll need to face her fears in order to accept the true nature of the relationship she and George have built over a decade together.

On a dim winter afternoon, a young Irish immigrant opens the gas taps in his Brooklyn tenement. In the aftermath of the fire that follows, the aging nun Sister St. Savior appears, unbidden, to direct the way forward for his pregnant widow.

Nomadland: [surviving America in the Twenty-first Century]

Nomadland: [surviving America in the Twenty-first Century]
Bruder, Jessica

From the beet fields of North Dakota to the National Forest campgrounds of California to Amazon's CamperForce program in Texas, employers have discovered a new, low-cost labor pool, made up largely of transient older Americans. Finding that social security comes up short, often underwater on mortgages, these invisible casualties of the Great Recession have taken to the road by the tens of thousands in late-model RVs, travel trailers, and vans, forming a growing community of nomads: migrant laborers who call themselves 'workampers.' On frequently traveled routes between seasonal jobs, Jessica Bruder meets people from all walks of life: a former professor, a McDonald's vice president, a minister, a college administrator, and a motorcycle cop, among many others; including her irrepressible protagonist, a onetime cocktail waitress, Home Depot clerk, and general contractor named Linda May.
