What are we Reading this month?

The Body Keeps The Score, Bessel Van Der Kolk, 2015

Published just a few months ago, Bessel van der Kolk's new book is a fascinating discussion of how trauma affects the body - and how physical healing is necessary for complete recovery. Though it doesn't discuss sport specifically, it is very relevant to the work we all do.

 

Check if out if you're interested in:

  • Learning more about how trauma plays a part in the lives and development of young people.
  • Exploring the different kinds of treatment modules that encourage movement and agency amongst trauma survivors.
Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain, John Ratey, 2008

John Ratey is an international leader in translating the intricacies of neuroscience into language we can all understand and apply to our lives. In this book, he lays out the evidence for why physical activity is a crucial tool in fighting both physical and mental health challenges.

 

Check it out if you're interested in:

  • Ways that physical activity of all kinds can be helpful for holistic health.
  • Learning more about the interaction between public health and the sports/physical activity worlds.
How Children Succeed, Paul Tough, 2012

This ground-breaking book by Paul Tough examines how non-academic "character" skills - things like grit and curiosity - help young people overcome challenges and be resilient. His work has kick-started a more robust discussion about how we help kids develop these skills just like we would any other area of competence.

Check it out if you're interested in:

  • Exploring how non-academic skills are crucial in the lifelong success of all humans, especially those who have had a tough start to life.
  • How resilience is built in young people, even when their initial experiences are not all positive.
