Trauma, Illness & Healing in a Toxic Culture
Dr. Maté will be presenting at the Fairmont Waterfront Hotel in Vancouver, Canada on April 13, 2024.
Dr. Gabor Maté and Rae Maté share insights from 54 years of marriage. They illuminate a key dynamic that puts our relationships under pressure: the conflict between our deeply-rooted attachment needs and our drive for authenticity, to be genuinely ourselves. What happens when out of fear we repress our true selves in our hope to make things work? The struggle can take a heavy toll on marriage and intimacy, on children, and our immune systems—with outsized impact on women. In this rare joint appearance, Gabor and Rae discuss their own challenges, missteps and lessons learned along the path of love, growth and healing.
