The Wisdom of Trauma
FEATURING DR. GABOR MATÉ
Trauma is the invisible force that shapes our lives. It shapes the way we live, the way we love and the way we make sense of the world. It is the root of our deepest wounds. Dr. Maté gives us a new vision: a trauma-informed society in which parents, teachers, physicians, policy-makers and legal personnel are not concerned with fixing behaviors, making diagnoses, suppressing symptoms and judging, but seek instead to understand the sources from which troubling behaviors and diseases spring in the wounded human soul.

WHAT IS NEXT?
Our first film release week has been a huge success with over 4 million views from 220 countries. This event is now complete. We will be taking time to digest, reflect and envision the next steps. We will be developing a platform where we can continue to learn, participate and engage with the material and one another.
At the moment, the film is not available for viewing due to distribution constraints.
We intend to reach high schools, prisons, rehabs, universities, libraries, and households all over the world. We just need a little time to figure out the best way for the film to reach as many human hearts as possible.

ABOUT DR. GABOR MATÉ
A renowned speaker and bestselling author, Dr. Gabor Maté is highly sought after for his expertise on a range of topics including addiction, stress and childhood development.
Rather than offering quick-fix solutions to these complex issues, Dr. Maté weaves together scientific research, case histories, and his own insights and experience to present a broad perspective that enlightens and empowers people to promote their own healing and that of those around them.
After 20 years of family practice and palliative care experience, Dr. Maté worked for over a decade in Vancouver’s Downtown EastSide with patients challenged by drug addiction and mental illness. The author of four books published in over twenty-five languages, Dr. Maté is an expert on addiction, trauma, childhood development, and the relationship of stress and illness. His book on addiction received the Hubert Evans Prize for literary non-fiction.
“Every human has a true authentic self. Trauma is the disconnection from it and healing is the reconnection to it.”
