When we don't heal the pain trauma has inflicted upon us, it can impact those around us, including our children and our children's children. The same goes for our parents and grandparents.
Generational Trauma allows us to understand the effect our community and those we grew up around have on us- both genetically and behaviorally.
What is Generational Trauma?
What we know is that trauma can shape the way we think and react, and those things can be handed down through generations despite how harmful those behaviors and ideas may be. We pass down cues and behaviors to our children as they grow up, even if we are not aware of it.
Our therapists help you understand your family's patterns and how they impact your life in the now. They are there to support you as you learn to become aware of your triggers and symptoms so that you can embark on your healing journey to help break the cycle for generations to come.
How can generational trauma therapy help?
Trauma therapy aims to provide skills and techniques to help you better understand, cope, and manage emotions and memories related to traumatic events, with the ultimate goal of helping you to create a healthier relationship with the experiences that have taken place in your life.
Causes of Generational Trauma
Symptoms of intergenerational trauma always begin with the survivor of trauma, which tend to manifest as symptoms of PTSD.
Oftentimes trauma in the second generation is deemed as a traumatic response to parental trauma.
Transmission between the parent and child can be broken down into 5 measures: communication, conflict, family cohesion, parental warmth, and parental involvement.
