“Every human has a true authentic self. Trauma is the disconnection from it and healing is the reconnection to it.”
Dr. Gabor Maté
Trauma is the invisible force that shapes our lives. It shapes the way we live, the way we love and the way we make sense of the world. It is the root of our deepest wounds. In this documentary, Dr Maté gives us a new vision: a trauma-informed society in which parents, teachers, physicians, policy and law makers are not concerned with fixing behaviours, making diagnoses, suppressing symptoms and judging, but seek instead to understand the sources from which troubling behaviours and diseases spring in the wounded human soul.
“With this film, we hope to touch many people, begin a conversation, and develop a common understanding about how trauma impacts our individual lives, communities and society as a whole.*
