When The Body Says No: Mind/Body Unity and the Stress-Disease Connection                           
May 28, 2015

9:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.
Arden Park Hotel, 552 Ontario Street

In this workshop, based on the best-selling book When The Body Says No, Dr. Maté will discuss the heavy toll that stress can take on our bodies unless it is recognized and managed effectively and insightfully. There is strong evidence to suggest that in nearly all chronic health conditions, hidden stress is a major predisposing factor.  If properly understood, these conditions can provide important openings for compassion and self-awareness, which in turn are major tools in recovery and healing.

Beyond the Medical Model: A Biopsychosocial View of Attention Deficit Disorder and other Childhood Developmental Disorders
May 29, 2015

9:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.
Arden Park Hotel, 552 Ontario Street

In this workshop, based on the best-selling book Scattered Minds, Dr. Maté will present a biopsychosocial view of AD(H)D and other childhood developmental disorders which shows that while genetic predisposition may play a role, it is by no means decisive.  He presents evidence to suggest that the circuitry and physiology of the brain are affected by the environment not only during critical periods of early childhood development, but throughout the human lifetime.
