General Course Description

Understanding and Treating Intergenerational Transmission of TraumaThis course covers intergenerational trauma. Researchers and clinicians have become increasingly aware that the effects of trauma suffered by one generation - whether individual or collective trauma - are passed on to subsequent generations. Many therapists who treat offspring of traumatized parents or grandparents insufficiently or ineffectively treat the presenting symptoms such as depression, anxiety, or marital issues without understanding that these symptoms have a longer background that needs to be more directly addressed. This course will teach clinicians how to recognize intergenerational transmission of trauma, understand the mechanisms of transmission, and comprehend treatment principles.

This intermediate course, consisting of eleven articles, has four parts. Section One defines intergenerational transmission, offers a theoretical overview, and explains the collective, familial and interpersonal mechanisms by which it occurs. Section Two covers specific populations: families of Holocaust survivors, Estonians, and Native Americans. Section Three covers general and specific treatment principles, including the role of religion and spirituality and psychodynamic work. Section Four provides resources for clinicians and clients who are suffering from trauma.
