Therapy Tuesday (Episode 2) - Intergenerational Trauma

A fortnightly podcast for people looking to have conversations about mental health from a feminist perspective

We decided to address intergenerational trauma in this episode. Systemic oppression, conflict, genocide, abuse, living in fear in a misogynistic environment, sudden or painful displacement- a lot of things can lead to traumatic stress that we can pass on to younger family members. The risk of creating a cycle of oppression runs high.

What could be the intergenerational traumas we maybe carrying that could affect future generations? What can attachment styles look like? What have our previous relationships have looked liked? And more importantly what can healing look like?
