By Norman Doidge:
- The Brain’s Way of Healing. Remarkable discoveries and recoveries from the frontiers of brain science.
- The Brain That Changes Itself. Stories of personal triumph from the frontiers of brain science.
In his first book, The Brain That Changes Itself, Norman Doidge introduced readers to the most important change in our understanding of the brain since the beginning of modern science: the discovery that the brain can change its own structure and function through the phenomenon of neuroplasticity. His latest book, The Brain’s Way of Healing, shows how the amazing process of neuroplastic healing can work.

- The Body Keeps The Score. Brain, mind and the body in the healing of trauma.
Dr. Van Der Kolk’s book discusses how important it is to work with and study the body when it comes to resolving the functional compromises resulting from trauma. The book shows how, time after time with individual patients, all trauma is held in the body and must be resolved through the body.
