Compassionate Inquiry



By separating mind from body and the individual from the social environment, we limit our ability to address the roots of many of the emotional and physical problems along a broad range of conditions that our clients bring to therapy.

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 a developmental approach that recognizes the lifelong impact of early childhood stress, often exacerbated by socially induced cultural dislocation.

Outline

In this workshop Dr. Mate weaves together scientific research, his practice and personal experiences to present a treatment modality that transforms and heals.

Mate defines and introduces Compassionate Inquiry as an approach to psychotherapy in which both the individual and therapist uncover the level of consciousness, mental climate, hidden assumptions, implicit memories and body states which forms the real message that words both express and conceal.

Mate builds on his book, When the Body Says “No”.
