Generational Transmission of Trauma

This weekend conference will address how the traumatic legacies of our forbearers haunt our psyches, our relationships, our cultural collectives and shape our lives. Bedrock to this inquiry is the understanding that traumatic legacies are transmitted across multiple generations and therefore will inevitably return and disrupt human bonds. Invited speakers and faculty of the NYU Postdoctoral Program will present films, papers and engage in conversations that focus on healing and resilience in the face of trans-generational transmission of trauma. Through first person testimony, open discussions, film clips, shared meals, and optional process group experience, attendees will participate in this repair.

Co-Chairs: Sue Grand, Ph.D. and Jill Salberg, Ph.D
