Intergenerational Transmission of Trauma Effects in Families
Conditions of high stress and multiple trauma exposures across generations require that individuals and families make significant adaptations in order to survive. A review of the literature will focus on the impact of those adaptations on family functioning and parent child relationships. Particular emphasis will be placed on the negative effects of traumatic exposures and enduring stressful conditions on help seeking behavior and ability to benefit from services. Presenters will use clinical examples from three family focused trauma models to demonstrate interventions that that promote engagement and build family strengths in the face of historical and present day adversities.
