Intergenerational Trauma and Our Work with Birth Parents: Understanding the Bridge to Success! (Online, On-demand Course)


The reality for many of our families is that generation after generation, children are exposed to interpersonal trauma in the home/family setting. Understanding how patterns of intergenerational trauma occur, how this affects parenting and life management, as well as how best to interpret our parents’ behavior to then engage with them and help them create safety and stability for their children is critical to their success and relationship with their child(ren). This online course will begin by discussing the need for screening for adult trauma exposure.
