Gabor Maté ‘Who We Are When We Are Not Addicted: The Possible Human’

As promised a couple of days ago, here is an whole hour of the wonderful Gabor Maté, sharing his thoughts on this theme. The writer watched this last night, and found it spell-binding. He’s original, profound and funny – and deeply person-centred, in the sense we understand it.

Make yourself a cup of something, plump up the cushions and settle in for the duration – you will not regret it.

And here’s a link to his book, ‘In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts – Close Encounters with Addiction’:-
