Psychotherapeutic insights into resolving intergenerational trauma

An international conference

31 May and 1 June 2014


The traumas of our parents, grand-parents and ancestors – particularly those that are unknown and thus unformulated in consciousness - are deeply woven into the psychological fabric of the living. They lurk within the psyche as an unseen but potent force, often manifesting as a vulnerability throughout life. This conference continues the theme of intergenerational trauma in Confer’s programme, and brings together a group of psychotherapists and analysts whose work is deeply focused on this form of psychic intrusion. Over the two days we will consider the inner world of the intergenerationally traumatised psychotherapy patient, and the dynamics of the intergenerationally traumatised community. We will be asking: What are the mechanisms of transmission of traumatic affect from one generation to the next? 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 macropolitical historical events?
