Intergenerational Trauma
Recognising and healing cycles of ancestral pain

Monday evenings 4 November - 16 December 2013

Hidden, and often shrouded in shame and silence, the traumas of our parents, grand-parents and ancestors are deeply woven into the psychological fabric of the living, operating within the psyche as an unseen but potent force, often manifesting as a psychological fixity that leads to vulnerability throughout life.

This interdisciplinary seminar series is a gathering of experts in this field. Over 6 weeks we will consider the inner world of the inter-generationally traumatised individual, and the dynamics of the inter-generationally traumatised community. We will be asking: What are the mechanisms of transmission of traumatic affect from one generation to the next? What psychotherapeutic processes make resolution of those events a possibility? How can we intervene psychotherapeutically to break the cycles of the past in traumatised families and maximise healing for the future? What concepts are most useful in transforming the interplay between individual psychological processes and macro-political events?
