​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Workshop Description

Compassionate Inquiry is a psychotherapeutic method developed by Dr. Gabor Maté, that reveals what lies beneath the appearance we present to the world.

Using Compassionate Inquiry, the therapist unveils the level of consciousness, mental climate, hidden assumptions, implicit memories and body states that form the real message that words both express and conceal.

Through Compassionate Inquiry, the client can recognize the unconscious dynamics that run their lives and how to liberate themselves from them.

In this workshop, Dr. Maté will model the process of Compassionate Inquiry with course participants and instruct helping professionals in the practice of this powerful technique to help clients access deep healing and transformation. This will be both an experiential, participatory workshop where participants will be guided through their own personal process, as well as a training to introduce the method of Compassionate Inquiry to health professionals, therapists and social workers.
