Increasing Awareness: Survivors and Trauma
Trauma Healing, and the Brain
Dr. Gabor Mate
Renowned physician Dr. Mate has focused on addiction, mental illness trauma, and in their potential lifelong impacts on physical and mental health, for over two decades. He is internationally known for his work on the mind/body unity in health and illness, and his breakthrough analysis of addiction as a psychophysiological response to childhood trauma and emotional loss. In this brief lecture, Dr. Mate gives a clinical understanding in “layman’s” terms of the natural wiring of the mind, and what happens when catalysts of different types are introduced. While the information offered is clinical, the understanding it offers creates room for more compassion and empathy for practitioners working with those dealing with trauma.
