Trauma is the invisible force that shapes our lives. It shapes the way we live, the way we love and the way we make sense of the world. It is the root of our deepest wounds. Dr. Gabor Maté gives us a new vision: a trauma-informed society in which parents, teachers, physicians, policy-makers and legal personnel are not concerned with fixing behaviors, making diagnoses, suppressing symptoms and judging, but seek instead to understand the sources from which troubling behaviors and diseases spring in the wounded human soul.
Produced and directed by Maurizio and Zaya Benazzo, The Wisdom of Trauma
film hopes to touch many people, begin a conversation, and develop a common understanding about how trauma impacts our individual lives, communities and society as a whole.
