During this book, Dr. Bruce Perry and Oprah Winfrey try to reframe the concept of trauma. In What happened to you? you’ll read the tons of conversations Perry had with Oprah where they get to speak about it and because of his background in the field of trauma related to children he explains the concept in a simple but interesting way. Questions that need to be asked and that we all want to know. Throughout the book it becomes clear that human beings are the product of their personal history. The collections of things that happened to us influences the person that we become. Perry suggests a shift in our thinking from what’s wrong with that person to what happened to him or her? The book completely changed my perspective on what trauma is, how it functions and how it shows up in our lives. In the book review I will share more of my thoughts. However trauma can be a sensitive, heavy topic to read and speak about, I believe everyone should read this one.
