Engaging Families Impacted by Historical, Intergenerational, and Individual Trauma

Trauma in families is often assessed and viewed by their providers through a limited lens, often focusing on the individual trauma or intergenerational trauma. However, there is growing evidence of, and discussion about, the impact that historical and collective trauma has on individuals and families. Historical and collective trauma not only impacts the lives of individuals and families that we encounter in clinical practice, but entire groups of people. In this course, we will examine ways in which historical and collective trauma impacts family dynamics and relationships through increasing our critical consciousness while assessing and treating families in our clinical work.

Course Objectives:

  • Participants will discuss ways in which intergenerational and historical/collective trauma impact communities, especially BIPOC communities.
  • Participants will identify ways in which they can increase their critical consciousness while assessing and treating families in their clinical work.
  • Participants will identify ways in which they can engage in treatment approaches that are culturally responsive and aligned with the concepts related to critical consciousness.
