Dr. Gabor Maté, renowned expert, speaker, and author, in conversation with Magdalena Smieszek, reflects on human development and the interplay of biological, social, and psychological factors in a human being that he calls biopsychosocial. He talks about his childhood in Hungary between the Second World War, as a Jewish survivor of the Holocaust, and the Hungarian Revolution in 1956 at which point he migrated with his family to Canada. The discussion covers a range of subjects, considering child development, genetics and the environment, multigenerational pain and trauma, identity formation, addiction, and the historical political conflicts around the world caught in a cycle of oppression and retribution. Gabor Maté considers different healing methods for the mind and body and calls for a sense of individual and collective responsibility.
