The experience of trauma can ripple through a family and pass between generations. This leaves the children of trauma survivors with secondary trauma which can have impacts just as catastrophic as the first-hand 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.
