Healing the Wounds of Intergenerational Trauma

This series features ground-breaking dialogues with leading scholars, psychotherapists and shamanic practitioners dealing with the residual effects of historical trauma on Native and African American communities and other under-served communities. The series will explore current clinical findings and scientific research and raise questions such as:

  • What is intergenerational trauma?
  • How does it manifest in particular groups?
  • How do historic systems of oppression impact modern health?
  • Is trans-generational trauma one of the causative factors in the alteration of gene expression?
  • What are some of the healing modalities and practices from indigenous and Western traditions?
