Episode 19: Dr. Gabor Maté
Understanding Trauma with Gabor Maté
Dr. Gabor Maté’s approach to working with patients suffering from addiction, stress and trauma has earned him worldwide praise. Maté, author of “In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts,” stresses that trauma is not what happened to you, but what happens inside you and when this is acknowledged the healing process can begin.
In this interview, Gabor and I discuss the larger societal issues that are causing so many stressors, generational trauma, why we develop addictions and the importance of self-compassion.
