2: The myth of normal and addressing trauma with Dr Gabor Maté and Daniel Maté
I am so unbelievably honoured to welcome Dr. Gabor. Maté and Daniel Maté to discuss their latest book, The Myth of Normal. Dr. Gabor Maté is a world renowned physician and trauma expert. He's written numerous bestselling books and changed the lives of millions. Through his pioneering work with addiction, mental health and trauma for over 30 years, his breakthrough work has helped shed light on the connections between physical and mental health and has influenced the way we think about and treat mental illness. Dr. Gabor's co-author is his son Daniel Maté, who was an acclaimed composer, lyricist and playwright amongst many other accomplishments.Together, they host workshops and help so many people. In this fantastically thought provoking and timely book, they draw your attention to the role that social and environmental factors play in mental health. This book shares extensive evidence detailing how the problems so many of us face are not individual, but a natural consequence of a broken culture and unattended psychic wounds. I have more compassion for myself and everyone else after reading this incredible book, and I can't wait to discuss it further with these two heroes who wrote it.
