Intergenerational & Racial Trauma and Finding Healing

Researchers and clinicians have long recognized the effects of intergenerational trauma – trauma that gets passed down from those who directly experience an incident to the next generations. Intergenerational trauma can easily intersect with racial trauma – itself a type of collective trauma.

We want to acknowledge, not deny, how trauma affects us as individuals, families, and communities struggling with mental health issues. Join us for this important conversation. Replay includes ASL interpretation.
