Mental Illness or Adaptation? Helping Challenging Clients

Gabor Maté, MD
presented by Leading Edge Seminars

Webinar: Live Broadcast Dates: Friday, January 7, 2022
Live Broadcast Time: 1:00 pm to 4:15 pm ET

Can’t Attend Live? This webinar will be recorded and archived. All registrants will be given unlimited access to the recording for a full year after the Live Broadcast date.

Mental illness, according to the prevailing medical-psychiatric view, is largely rooted in genetic inheritance. But such a perspective is devoid of scientific evidence. It also ignores how mental-emotional distress is both a psychological and physiological response to people’s lived experiences. Furthermore, emotional stress has been shown to cause physical illnesses—from cancer to autoimmune disorders and many other chronic diseases.

Join renowned speaker, expert and author, Dr. Gabor Maté, for this dynamic, 3-hour live webinar (also available on-demand if you can’t attend). Dr. Maté will share his insights on the relationship between mind and body in his signature honest and empathic style. Together, you’ll explore the role that childhood adversity plays in mental illness and how we adapt or don’t adapt to life’s realities.

This interactive, participatory seminar will show how the entire range of mental “diseases” originates in childhood trauma or adversity. We will explore ways of working with clients to address root causes of mental illness, rather than examining symptoms and behaviours. Dr. Maté will combine scientific research, case histories, and his insights and experience to show you how to help your clients heal.

A renowned speaker and bestselling author, Dr. Gabor Maté is highly sought after for his expertise on many topics including addiction, stress, and childhood development. His experience includes 20 years of family practice and palliative care. Dr. Maté also spent over a decade working with patients challenged by drug addiction and mental illness.

Dr. Maté is the bestselling author of four books published in over 25 languages. His book on addiction received the Hubert Evans Prize for literary non-fiction. He has been awarded the Order of Canada, the country’s highest civilian distinction, for his ground-breaking medical work and writing. He also received the Civic Merit Award from his hometown, Vancouver.
