Intergenerational Trauma

Event Dates

Trauma has a lasting impact on the victims and survivors and those closest to them. But the effects of the trauma do not stop there – they can be passed on for generations. This can happen genetically, prenatally, and developmentally to name a few. This presentation will discuss the variety of ways that trauma and its impact are passed on intergenerationally, how it affects the body, brain, and various aspects of development.
