Intergenerational Trauma

Like so many aspects of our lives the experience of trauma ripples through families and is passed between generations. This leaves the children of trauma survivors as the holders of secondary trauma, which can sometimes have impacts just as catastrophic as the firsthand experience.

The direct experience of trauma has a profound impact, particularly if it is complex or occurs at an early age. For the many trauma survivors who have not had the opportunity to fully process and heal from their experiences, it can play out in parenting patterns, substance misuse, difficulty with work or education and even family violence, neglect and abuse, perpetuating the trauma for the next generation.

This insightful course explores the particular effects of intergenerational trauma and how it presents in people’s lives. It will assist participants to understand maladaptive behaviours through the trauma lens and equip them to provide more appropriate and empathetic services.

Content covered includes:

  • The cycle of trauma
  • The nature of secondary exposure
  • Collective trauma
  • Maladaptive behaviours and parenting
  • Case studies and experiences of Aboriginal and other communities
  • Pathways to healing
  • Community resources and support

This course includes

  • Engaging, up-to-date materials.
  • Take-home reference package and free online resources.
  • All day catering and beverages - with dietary needs catered for.
