How Inherited Family Trauma Shapes Who We Are and How to End the Cycle (Viking/Penguin)

Winner of the 2016 Silver Nautilus Book Award in Psychology

Learn how the traumas of our parents, grandparents, and even great grandparents can live in our unexplained depression, anxiety, fears, phobias, obsessive thoughts and physical symptoms—what scientists are now calling “secondary PTSD.”

Documenting the latest epigenetic research—how traumatic memories are transmitted through chemical changes in DNA—and the latest advances in neuroscience and the science of language, It Didn’t Start With You is an accessible and pragmatic guide to breaking inherited family patterns.

His unique approach has enhanced my own exponentially beyond any other method I previously employed. Mark’s uncanny ability to uncover the essential dynamics operating beneath physical complaints is nothing short of miraculous. His technique enables a radical shift in perspective for both patients as well as for practitioners.
Dr. Bruce Hoffman

I heard absolutely excellent things about your workshop. I am chagrined, once again, that I had to miss it, but was gratified to hear that others found it to be not only useful but deeply transformative. It sounds like you bring a very unique, valuable, and grounded voice to this work. I feel like we are really fortunate to be able to provide a platform for bringing your work to our community!

As medical doctors, we often treat the symptom. I’ve witnessed Mark identify the pattern and treat the cause.
