BC Nurses United for Social Justice Webinar: An Evening with Dr. Gabor Maté
This event will focus on the devastating violence in Gaza and how it impacts healthcare workers, the healthcare system, and the Palestinian people. What is the relationship between the events of October 7, and the colonization of the Palestinian people? We invite you to listen and learn from one of the world's foremost experts on trauma, as we share an evening with Dr. Gabor Maté. Opening our event will be Coast Salish, Snuneymuxw, and Cowichan Nations Elder, Dr. Roberta Price.

About Dr. Roberta Price
For over 30 years, Elder Roberta Price has actively shared her leadership, wisdom and teachings at UBC and throughout the Lower Mainland to assist both Indigenous and non-Indigenous community members to achieve improved outcomes in health care. A member of the Coast Salish, Snuneymuxw, and Cowichan Nations, she has been instrumental in helping to create shared spaces for both Indigenous and Western approaches to healing and health. Her ongoing involvement and leadership in research projects have been key to the continued work of decolonizing health care and creating cultural safety and equity for Indigenous patients.

About Dr. Gabor Maté:
Gabor Maté M.D., C.M., is a Canadian physician (retired), public speaker and bestselling author of five books, published internationally in 35 languages on five continents. His book on addiction, the award-winning In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction, is used as a text in many institutions of higher learning in Canada and the U.S. His most recent book, The Myth of Normal: Trauma, Illness and Healing in a Toxic Culture, has been and continues to be a #1 Canadian bestseller and was 19 weeks a New York Times bestseller.

After two decades as a family doctor and palliative care director, for twelve years Gabor worked in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside with patients challenged by hard-core drug addiction, mental illness and HIV, including at Vancouver Supervised Injection Site, North Americas first such facility. His other interests encompass childhood developmental issues, ADHD, mind/body health, trauma and parenting. He is in constant demand as a speaker internationally and has addressed judicial bodies in Canada, the U.S. and Australia on the links between trauma, addictions, and dysfunctional behaviors. He has worked with many Indigenous communities around these issues.

He has received an Outstanding Alumnus Award from Simon Fraser University and an Honorary Degree (Laws) from the University of Northern British Columbia. For his groundbreaking medical work and writings, he has been given the Order of Canada, and the Civic Merit award from his home city of Vancouver. For his latest book, The Myth of Normal: Trauma, Illness and Healing in a Toxic Culture Gabor won the Vine Award for Canadian Jewish Literature in the Non-Fiction Category.

A film based on his work, The Wisdom of Trauma, has been viewed by over 10 million people internationally and has been translated into twenty languages. It is shown regularly in many institutions, including schools and prisons, in Canada, the U.S., and abroad. His therapeutic method, Compassionate Inquiry, has been, in the past three years, studied by over 3,000 health care providers in 80 countries.

Gabor is a speaker much in demand internationally on addiction, stress and mind/body health, child development, trauma, ADHD and other topics related to his five best-selling books. He has been featured on some of the most popular podcasts, such as Joe Rogan, Tim Ferris, Jay Shetty, and others.

His next book, co-written with his son Daniel, will be Hello Again: A Fresh Start for Adult Children and Their Parents, based on their popular workshop.


About the organizers:
This event is organized by BC Nurses United for Social Justice. We are a grassroots, member-organized group of BCNU* members who believe healthcare workers should play a pivotal role in decolonization and the promotion of social justice from Canada to Palestine. We seek to educate and engage our colleagues to inspire self-reflection and action. Among us are Indigenous and settler nurses living and working on the unceded, occupied, and stolen lands across what is colonially known as British Columbia.
