(Intergenerational trauma) is a term that has implications for anyone working with children, youth, adults and families across all service systems. It is a complex construct that entails developmental neurobiology and epigenetics, and because it overlaps with historical trauma it also involves an understanding of the legacy of racism, slavery, colonialism and genocide. This presentation will focus on identifying ways that an understanding of intergenerational trauma can be integrated into a trauma informed approach to care.
