Gabor Maté: On Storytelling, Health, and the Ruling Class, with Ryan Meili

Click on the link for Part 2 of this fascinating, wide-ranging interview with Gabor Mate (Part 1 was yesterday’s post).

The writer is often struck with the strong links between what Gabor is saying, and person-centred. For example, Rogers would have resonated with the following:-

‘For me, the stories I tell and the theoretical or scientific points I make are not separable. The science or the research I present is relevant only because the issues that the research illuminates make a difference to people. The truth of it shows up in the lives of actual human beings. When I write my books I want people to understand certain issues in a different way and one way to illustrate that is through the experience of other human beings that people can actually relate to.’
