This semester the Tarlow Lab will be hosting a weekly book club open to all Hampton University students. We hope you can join us as we read and discuss The Body Keeps the Score by Dr. Bessel van der Kolk.
The Body Keeps the Score (Amazon link) has been widely described as a “masterpiece” and modern classic that explores the science and treatment of psychological trauma.
The Tarlow Lab will prepare discussion questions each week following the schedule below. Attend when you can, and come-and-go as your schedule permits.
All book club meetings will start in MLK 235 at 11:30 am and run for 30-60 minutes. (discussion moderators in parentheses)
