Gabor Mate The Wisdom of Trauma Screening in Palestine

In the runup to Dr. Gabor Maté's visit to Palestine, Catharsis Holistic Healing arranged a screening of Gabor Maté's "The Wisdom of Trauma" at the AM Qattan Foundation in Ramallah, Palestine. Although based on Western society's experiences with addiction caused by childhood trauma, in Palestine, the trauma caused by life under occupation manifests in different ways.

“So much of what we call abnormality in this culture is actually normal responses to an abnormal culture. The abnormality does not reside in the pathology of individuals, but in the very culture that drives people into suffering and dysfunction.”

Gabor Maté

Dr. Gabor Maté is a renowned speaker and bestselling author. He is highly sought after for his expertise on the effect of trauma on childhood development and the suffering of adulthood. As an infant holocaust survivor, Dr. Maté has a unique insight into the Israel/Palestine conflict and how intergenerational trauma on both sides has brought us to this painful time in the history of the conflict.
