Dr. Gabor Maté discusses the importance of environment and stress of the parent for mind and brain development in children. The topics he covers include ADD/ADHD, implicit memory and counter-will. He delivered his presentation at the KMT Child Development and Community Conference in Toronto.
What he prescribes is that one of the greatest gifts you can give your children is your own happiness, mental, and emotional well being.
What is most important to take away is that due to neural plasticity through mindfulness and awareness training you can change your mind, emotions, and behaviors.
