Breaking Intergenerational Transmission of Trauma

October 23 @ 1:00 pm October 24 @ 4:00 pm

In this training, participants will engage in a conversation about race-based historical trauma of Black & Indigenous communities, as well as the trauma responses and characteristics present among caregivers. We will also learn about the 3 processes in which ITT is transmitted to the next generation, educate ourselves on a few longitudinal studies that helped shaped the research results. The training will explore the strong connection between ITT & attachment as well as the relationship between the nature of traumas and parenting outcomes. Evidence-based intervention models will be presented, such as the Perinatal Interactional Model of approaching ITT within familial structures followed by some real-life case studies to apply the new learned skills. 

Learning Outcomes

  1. Develop a deeper understanding of intergenerational trauma, with a focus on Black & Indigenous race-based historical trauma.
  2. Understand ITT from a neuroscience-based approach to trauma, the processes of transmission and parenting outcomes.
  3. Analyse key component of ITT & attachment theory and the importance of the parent-child connection to heal trauma.
  4. Apply evidence-based strategies, clinical interventions for breaking ITT through caregiving, with expecting mothers and families with children.
