Description

<p>A celebrated speaker, and bestselling author, <b>Dr Gabor Maté</b> is highly sought after for his expertise on a range of topics including addiction, stress and childhood development. Rather than offering quick-fix solutions to these complex issues, Dr Maté weaves together scientific research, case histories, and his own insights and experience to present a broad perspective that enlightens and empowers people to promote their own healing and that of those around them. <br><br>For twelve years Dr Maté worked in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside with patients challenged by hard-core drug addiction, mental illness and HIV, including at Vancouver's Supervised Injection Site. With over 20 years of family practice and palliative care experience and extensive knowledge of the latest findings of leading-edge research, Dr Maté is a sought-after speaker and teacher, regularly addressing health professionals, educators, and lay audiences throughout North America. <br><br>As an author, Dr Maté has written several bestselling books including the award-winning <i>In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts,</i> <i>When the Body Says No,</i> <i>Scattered Minds</i> and co-authored <i>Hold on to Your Kids</i>. His most recent book <i>The Myth of Normal: Trauma, Illness & Healing in a Toxic Culture</i> is a <i>New York Times</i> bestseller. Dr Maté's works have been published internationally in over twenty languages.<br><br>Dr Gabor Maté has received the Hubert Evans Prize for Literary Non-Fiction; an Honorary Degree (Law) from the University of Northern British Columbia; an Outstanding Alumnus Award from Simon Fraser University and the 2012 Martin Luther King Humanitarian Award from Mothers Against Teen Violence. He is an adjunct professor in the Faculty of Criminology at Simon Fraser University. <br><br>Supporters of Dr Maté include Dr Rangan Chatterjee, Simon Amstell, Bessel van der Kolk, Johann Hari, Esther Perel and Russell Brand. He was recently featured in the highly publicised livestream conversation with Prince Harry where they discussed loss, trauma and the importance of healing.</p>
