Coronavirus (COVID-19) Scams

Hey everyone, the Government of Canada is warning against Coronavirus (COVID-19) scams:

As COVID-19 continues to spread globally, protect yourself and beware of associated scams. Fraudsters want to profit from consumers’ fears, uncertainties and misinformation. Turn to trusted resources and advice for health, financial and security resources.

Be aware of what information you provide, who you are providing it to, and why you need to provide it. If you aren’t sure of “the facts”, you can ask lots of questions and you can talk it over with someone you trust before you decide what to do!

Stay safe, and stay healthy.

SPOTLIGHT: Free online education resource!

We just heard about a resource that offers free online education – and we want to tell you about it!

As we head into this new year, we wanted to share an important event that Dr. Maté is a part of, as well as upcoming speaking engagements.

Healing Addiction Summit

Chances are, you or someone you know has been affected by addiction of some type.

Addiction is a problem that still has a lot of shame around it, so it’s something we don’t talk about enough in general. And partially because of that, it’s an epidemic that is tearing apart families and communities.

Please join Dr. Maté and over 25 of the world’s leading experts, practitioners, and visionaries for the Healing Addiction Summit, where he talks in-depth about his book Hold On To Your Kids, and about reawakening healing parental instincts. You can register for this free event here. If you know somebody in your life who would benefit (particularly someone who has a family member or loved one who is battling addiction), then please share with them by forwarding this email.

“This topic is more important than ever today and is critical to the parent/child relationship.”
Dr. Gabor Maté

On August 2nd & 3rd you can find Dr. Maté in Melbourne, Australia speaking to the Australia Childhood Foundation on the theme of Trust and Betrayal: Therapeutic Interventions that work in the Face of Relational and Complex Trauma.
