Compassionate Inquiry is a psychotherapeutic approach developed by Dr. Gabor Maté that reveals what lies beneath the appearance we present to the world.
Using Compassionate Inquiry, both the individual and therapist unveil the level of consciousness, mental climate, hidden assumptions, implicit memories and body states that form the real message that words both express and conceal.
The deep teaching is about the quality of the relationship that you establish, and the kind of compassion you can generate.
Over 30 hours of video with Dr. Gabor Maté teaching and demonstrating Compassionate Inquiry.
Over 50 videotaped recordings and transcripts of Dr. Gabor Maté modelling Compassionate Inquiry with clients.
At least fifty 60-90 minute practice sessions in dyads and triads.
Twenty-five 90 minute online biweekly small group sessions to review the modules, lead by an experienced small group facilitator.
Regular Q&A zoom calls with Dr. Gabor Maté to explore the material more deeply.
Eight modules of teachings on safety, attunement, trauma, triggers, attachment, authenticity, diagnosis, memory, beliefs, emotions, pain, addiction, children and more ... plus a recommended reading list for each module.
Each module contains streaming videos of Gabor's Teachings, Skill-Building, and Conversations with Clients, along with transcripts. A pdf for each module summarizes and integrates Gabor's teachings from 5 separate Compassionate Inquiry 2-day workshops.
You will participate in weekly skill-building sessions and bi-weekly facilitated group sessions to integrate the material.
"This training is for people who work with people, whether you are a therapist, counsellor, addiction worker, family therapist, physician, nurse - and you work with people in a healing capacity. It is a summation and distillation of what I have learned over decades.
The essence of it is to get to a point of compassionate presence and connection with the client, at the heart of the issue that they came to you with. Experience profound learning for yourself and support your clients with compassion."
~ Dr. Gabor Maté
