Join two of the most profound healers of our time to access unique insight into the causes of suffering and the potential for healing.
This module that's based on Gabor's bestselling book The Myth of Normal, explores the most common misconceptions around trauma and chronic stress, how and why we get stuck, and the specific pathways to healing.
Gabor covers some of the most prevalent mental health diagnoses therapists are seeing today including: ADHD, Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Self-Harm, ODD, Eating Disorders... and how we should be treating them through the lens of developmental trauma.
In this module, Gabor offers in-depth insight into how trauma and emotional stress, often hidden below consciousness and interwoven into the fabric of society, prepare the ground for disease. He'll also explore how to unlock our natural abilities for recovery and healing, and what it really means for humans to be resilient in the face of attachment injuries.
Integrating psychedelics has become a widely popular topic in treating trauma and other clinical issues. But not all experiences with psychedelics feel good. It's, in fact, common for people to experience some level of distress, and without proper guidance, these unpleasant journeys can leave people feeling more disintegrated than they were before.
In this dynamic module, Gabor will present from research and his own extensive experience, ways to reduce the likelihood of harm from psychedelic use — and how negative or unpleasant experiences can be transformed into deeply meaningful and healing experiences.
Drawing from his 12-year experience as the staff physician at a clinic for drug-addicted people in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside, this module offers transformative insight into the roots of addiction — and introduces how to develop a compassionate approach toward the addict that has the highest probability of restoring him or her to wholeness and health.
Based on cutting-edge scientific insight, this module also illuminates how the source of addictions is not to be found in genes, but in the early childhood environment where the neurobiology of the brain's reward pathways develops.
Stress is ubiquitous these days, and it can take a heavy toll unless it is recognized and managed effectively and insightfully. Though compassion fatigue is an oft-used phrase, how accurate is it? Does one truly become fatigued by feeling, expressing, or manifesting compassion?
This module will explore the deeper source of the well-known phenomenon of burnout. Gabor will show you practices to prevent compassion fatigue and restore your energy as a healer. He'll also offer research results, as well as compelling and poignant anecdotes from his own extensive experience in family practice and palliative care.

In this CE workshop from the Psychotherapy Networker Symposium, Gabor will introduce you to his widely popular Compassionate Inquiry approach to psychotherapy which takes the simple act of asking questions and transforms it into a powerful intervention that gets to the heart of a client's suffering more quickly and effectively than you likely ever imagined possible.
The first part of the workshop recording will address mental health diagnoses, such as addiction, ADHD, and depression; the second, chronic physical illnesses from autoimmune disease to malignancy.
These interactive sessions will demonstrate how to recognize the lifelong impact of early childhood stress, often exacerbated by socially induced cultural dislocation — and how to use that insight to revolutionize your healing work.

"Trauma is not what happens to us.
It's what happens inside of us as a result of what happens to us."
Not at all. This program is designed for all therapists that work with trauma, addictions, or other clinical issues. Gabor will provide unique insight and demonstrate principles and techniques from his Compassionate Inquiry approach that any clinician can benefit from.
Even if you have trained in Compassionate Inquiry, you'll walk away with new a understanding of specific clinical challenges and populations that can greatly enhance your work.
