FARGO — Professionals who work with traumatized populations are invited to a December screening of a film documentary exploring a different approach to healing trauma.

"The Wisdom of Trauma" will be screened Tuesday, Dec. 7, at 7 pm at the Fargo Theatre, 314 Broadway N. in Fargo, hosted by HeartSprings Community Healing Center. A panel discussion will follow.

The film documents the vision of Dr. Gabor Maté, where the focus is not on fixing behaviors, suppressing symptoms and judging, but instead on understanding the trauma from which troubling behaviors and diseases result.

The film contains sensitive conversations on trauma and addiction, so viewer discretion is advised.

Those invited to the screening include addiction counselors, teachers, social workers, counselors, clergy and youth directors, according to a news release.
