Oprah Winfrey and Dr Bruce Perry uncover What Happened to You? – a revolutionary book on healing trauma
More about the book!
In their new book, Oprah Winfrey, bestselling author and globally renowned icon, and brain development and trauma expert Dr Bruce D Perry discuss the impact of trauma and adverse experiences and how healing must begin.
What Happened To You?: Conversations on Trauma, Resilience, and Healing is out now from Pan Macmillan.
Through wide-ranging, and often deeply personal conversation, the authors explore how what happens to us in early childhood – both good and bad – influences the people we become.
They challenge us to shift from focusing on, ‘What’s wrong with you?’ or ‘Why are you behaving that way?,’ to asking, ‘What happened to you?’
This simple change in perspective can open up a new and hopeful understanding for millions about why we do the things we do, why we are the way we are, providing a road map for repairing relationships, overcoming what seems insurmountable, and ultimately living better and more fulfilling lives.
In conversation throughout the book, the two focus on understanding people, behaviour, and ourselves in the context of personal experiences.
