In this webinar, we will explore definitions of both Intergenerational Trauma and Historical Trauma and their transmission through generations as well as the impact they may have on communities and individuals’ mental health. Approaching these topics from a decolonial and collective perspective, something that is seldom done in therapy training and practice, we can consider some avenues for an effective and long-lasting healing process.
This webinar is suitable for anyone interested in the subject, mental health professionals and also people who might feel affected by this issue.
