Michigan Indian Day: Intergenerational Trauma: The Impact on Indigenous Communities (September 2018)


For generations, Indigenous and Tribal Nations have endured ongoing, intermittent trauma through colonialism, mass forced migration, war, and many other present-day incidents. This intergenerational trauma has resulted in studies supporting the idea that long-term trauma affects families and communities across generations, negatively affecting mental and physical health. In this workshop, you will explore the impact of historical trauma on communities. You will also learn about strength-based approaches to helping communities face crisis and trauma. You will learn practical and theory-based examples for helping communities create positive space for empowering resilience and protective factors toward transcending trauma and promoting healing.
