The Hungry Ghost: A Biopsychosocial Perspective on Addiction from Heroin to Workaholism
April 27, 2022 @ 12:30 pm - 4:15 pm
The Hungry Ghost: A Biopsychosocial Perspective on Addiction from Heroin to Workaholism with Dr. Gabor Mate
This workshop, based on the best-selling book In The Realm of Hungry Ghosts, draws on cutting-edge science to illuminate where and how addictions originate and what they have in common, whether the addiction is to drugs, alcohol, nicotine, or behavioural addictions such as shopping or sex. Dr. Maté weaves together scientific research, case histories, and his own insights and experience to explain the roots of addiction and to encourage us to develop a compassionate approach towards the addicted individual; one that stands the best chance of restoring him or her to wholeness and health.
