302 - The Biology of Loss

How to Foster Resilience When Attachments Are Impaired

A family physician for over three decades, Gabor Maté has become a leading voice for the destigmatization and compassionate treatment of mental health and addiction. He’s the author of four bestselling books, published in 25 languages, including When the Body Says No: Exploring the Stress-Disease Connection and the award-winning In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction. For his pioneering medical work and writings around trauma, mind–body health, and addiction medicine, he was awarded the Order of Canada in 2018. 

In this follow-up workshop to his keynote address, he’ll cover the core elements of healthy human development and what happens when critical attachments are lost or severed. He will discuss what it really means for humans to be resilient in the face of attachment injuries. What emerges is a new paradigm for relating, grounded in the present moment while not flinching from the past. 

Gabor Maté, MD, is the author of the upcoming books The Myth of Normal: Illness and Health in an Insane Culture and Hello Again: A Fresh Start for Adult Children and Their Parents. 

Note: This workshop is live.
