Gabor Maté, MD, a celebrated Canadian doctor who specializes in the study and treatment of addiction and Attention Deficit Disorder, will draw crucial connections among the health of the mind, body and human communities. His landmark book In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts explores how our childhood experiences can program neurological and psychological mechanisms that can lead to addiction, abuse, ADHD and other disorders.

A pathfinder in mind-body medicine, Dr. Matédescribes how “adverse childhood experiences” (ACEs) can be reversed and healed.
