Day 1 Session 1C - When Trauma is the Norm: Integrating A Holistic and Culturally Sensitive Approach to Helping Families Move From a Legacy of Trauma to a Legacy of Healing
Intergenerational trauma can impact the social, emotional, and/or behavioral conditions that exist within families and communities. Many families are not aware of the effects of such traumatic experiences and behaviors on their daily lives because it becomes the norm. Intergenerational trauma can impact one's ability to function healthily for themselves and the people around them. Mental health professionals are tasked with assisting families and communities with identifying and addressing unhealthy coping patterns of dealing with daily life that has been normalized. Although individuals may experience some form of direct trauma, clinicians can work with families to begin peeling back the layers of trauma that have been passed from generation to generation. Strength-bases, holistic, and family-focused interventions have been proven to be an effective way for clinicians to collaborate, educate and encourage self-exploration within the family system. The goal is to help families take on new meaningful steps toward change within their family unit and environment to create a healthier “new normal”.
