Bestselling author Gabor Maté has become a leading voice for the destigmatization and compassionate treatment of mental health and addiction. He’s the author of four bestselling books, including When the Body Says No: Exploring the Stress-Disease Connection, and the award-winning In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction.
He’ll discuss how trauma and emotional stress, often hidden below consciousness and interwoven into the very fabric of society, prepare the ground for disease. He'll also explore how to unlock our natural abilities for recovery and healing, particularly at a moment when therapists are struggling in unprecedented ways.
Maté will also cover the core elements of healthy human development and what happens when critical attachments are lost or severed. He will discuss what it really means for humans to be resilient in the face of attachment injuries. What emerges is a new paradigm for relating, grounded in the present moment while not flinching from the past.
