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. Dr. Maté gives us a new vision: a trauma-informed society in which parents, teachers, physicians, policy-makers and legal personnel are not concerned with fixing behaviors, making diagnoses, suppressing symptoms and judging, but seek instead to understand the sources from which troubling behaviors 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.
Premieres online this week, June 8-14, along with in-depth discussions with leading experts in the field of trauma and relationship, such as Peter Levine, Esther Perel, and Stephen Porges.

“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
