“The Wisdom of Trauma” Rebroadcast


We’re excited to share that Compassion Prison Project is featured in the upcoming film “The Wisdom of Trauma” highlighting the work and wisdom of Dr. Gabor Maté. Compassion Prison Project’s Founder Fritzi Horstman also participates as an expert guest speaker during the 7-day world premiere.

Trauma is the invisible force that shapes our lives. It shapes the way we live, the way we love and the way we make sense of the world. It is the root of our deepest wounds. Dr. Maté gives us a new vision: a trauma-informed society in which parents, teachers, physicians, policy-makers and legal personnel are not concerned with fixing behaviors, making diagnoses, suppressing symptoms and judging, but seek instead to understand the sources from which troubling behaviors and diseases spring in the wounded human soul.

Fritzi speaks as part of the event on A Vision for Compassionate Prison with Nneka Jones Tapia and Dr. Gabor Maté.

This talk explores:

  • How prisons perpetuate trauma
  • The outdated judicial paradigm
  • Prison as a sanctuary

Registration is open for a limited time. Watch the trailer and sign-up to watch the movie here.

*With this film, we hope to touch many people, begin a conversation, and develop a common understanding about how trauma impacts our individual lives, communities and society as a whole.*
