Product Description

Available Now!

Gabor Maté, M.D. provides a clear explanation of addiction and its crucial relationship to brain development in early childhood and associated environmental conditions. Through a synthesis of clinical experience, cutting edge brain research, and spiritual teachings, Dr. Maté describes why we seek such destructive ways to comfort ourselves and why is it so difficult to stop.  He explains the 4 basic brain systems involved with healthy development, as well as addiction, and why they are so powerful.  Dr. Maté proposes a compassionate approach to healing and suggests that we need to widen our lens to look at the conditions in the world that feed, drive and promote addiction versus health and balance.


A 3 CE course* focused on Brain Development and Addiction. Based on the video featuring world-renowned author and addiction physician Gabor Maté, MD. Includes brand new, comprehensive study guide you'll refer back to over and over.


Gabor Maté MD treated people with substance use disorders on Vancouver's Skid Row for 10+ years. In that time, he began to develop a curiosity about the relationship between addiction and trauma, early childhood bonding, and the development of neural pathways. 

His current work is based on extensive clinical experience and in-depth research into the existing scientific literature on how deficient neural pathways underlie addictive patterns, why these deficiencies develop, and how those struggling with SUDs can 'rewire' the neural pathways to retrain their brains away from the addictive patterns that have kept them locked in a struggle for sobriety. 

In the video presentation, filmed at an SUD treatment center in Canada, Gabor gently, compassionately, and non-judgmentally explains what drives addictive behavior, offers simple and easy-to-understand explanations of the neuroscience behind addiction, and provides understanding into what we can do to effect permanent change. The video carefully "connects the dots" between early childhood traumas, early parent/chiold bonding deficiencies (which he explains are not the fault of the parent, but a reflection of the parent's own wounds) and the development of deficient neural pathways, leading to a predisposition not only toward substance use disorders but also to mental health disorders and other issues. 

Gbor's carefully researhed work is paradigm shifting and is gaining internatlonal acclaim as a new and industry-changing perspective on addiction/SUD prevention, treatment, and long-term healing. 

The new study guide covers all of the salient material presented inthe video, organized and broken down into digestible segmets.
