Trauma and Stress Across the Lifespan:
Attachment and Healing in Childhood and Beyond

This full-day talk by Dr. Gabor Maté addresses the impact trauma and stress of our everyday lives have on children, adolescents, and adults. Gabor Maté describes how adverse childhood events and trauma change the mind body connection. The alarming proliferation of childhood diagnosis, from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) to autism, and current opioid epidemic reflects the increasing absence for the nurturing conditions required for healthy child development.  Recognizing what is missing will help us restore these essential conditions. Stress we do not recognize or generate unconsciously takes its toll in physical illness or anxiety or depression. Recognizing stress-generating patterns in ourselves and our environment helps us maintain or regain physical and emotional health.

This talk is open to the general public and all interested persons. 
6 CEUs available.
