We are aware that trauma has a lasting impact on the victims, survivors and those closest to them. But the effects, behaviors and contributors of the trauma may be passed on for generations. This can happen genetically, prenatally, developmentally, and culturally to name a few, and often the intergenerational family culture is the vehicle by which this occurs. This presentation will discuss the variety of ways that trauma and its impact are passed on intergenerationally, and how it effects the body, brain, and various aspects of development. Also discussed are intervention approaches that not only include the survivor and perpetrator, but the family and its culture as well.
