Transgenerational Trauma

16th April 2020

The two tables below developed by Damien McNally, one of our trauma education facilitators are based on the teaching delivered on the module on Transgenerational Trauma (part of the BSc in Psychological Trauma Studies delivered by WAVE and QUB).
These tables highlight that trauma is as much a social and political issue as a medical one.
To prevent trauma being passed to the next generations will require individual therapies and help but more importantly, requires that answers and acknowledgement are provided for those traumatised.
Hopefully this can be used to enable discussions about what we need to do to tackle trauma no matter what the circumstances may be.
