Russell Brand and Gabor Maté

Russell Brand interviews Gabor Maté, the physician/family doctor in Canada with a special interest in childhood trauma and addiction. In this interview, Brand and Maté discuss the many forms addiction can take, how we can cope as damaged people in the world and are we being ruled by traumatized politicians? As Brand said on his website, “Gabor has a very loving, optimistic and benevolent worldview that you will hopefully benefit from listening to in this episode.” In my earlier post, A Compassionate Approach to Addiction, I talk about Maté’s belief that to address addiction we must first address the trauma.
