synopsis

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.

“So much of what we call abnormality in this culture is actually normal responses to an abnormal culture. The abnormality does not reside in the pathology of individuals, but in the very culture that drives people into suffering and dysfunction.”

- Gabor Maté

“Trauma is not what happens to you. Trauma is what happens inside you, as a result of what happens to you.”

- Gabor Maté

"Every human being has a true genuine authentic self and the trauma is that disconnection from it and the healing is the reconnection with it."

- Gabor Maté
