Transgenerational transmission of trauma and resilience: from awareness to working through

March 6 @ 9:30 am 12:00 pm EST

I will present Myths and Realities about Intergenerational Transmission of Trauma on Sunday March 6, 2022 between 9:30 am and Noon.

Myths and Realities about Intergenerational Transmission of Trauma by Eva Fogelman

Abstract:

Trauma has become so commonplace that it has lost its original meaning, which in broad terms means experiencing a situation that is impossible to cope with and withstand.  And, what exactly is being transmitted to the next generation is also so generalized, which has come to imply that descendants of trauma survivors are also traumatized.  This presentation will explore the consequences of growing with Holocaust survivor parents. What distinguishes this population from their peers whose parents were not survivors?  Who among the second generation of Holocaust survivors are truly traumatized.

Description: Virtual Conference on Transgenerational Transmission of Trauma and Parent-Child Development

In a dark time, the eye begins to see… — Theodore Roethke
Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced
. — James Baldwin

This conference is a follow-up of our first conference on transgenerational transmission of trauma and parent-child relationships, entitled “Who’s Afraid of Alice Miller?” — based on a documentary with the same title. Here is the webpage of the conference: https://events.orinyc.org/alice/.

During that conference in December 2021, we watched the documentary by Daniel Howald, “Who’s Afraid of Alice Miller?” that received the 2021 Gradiva Award® for the best film from NAAP, and had a presentation by and a discussion with Martin Miller, Alice Miller’s son, who became a psychologist and who – after many years of various therapies and analysis – is working with children and adults to overcome childhood trauma, and transgenerational trauma too. There were other presentations done by members of various working groups and organizations dealing with parent-child relationships, childhood trauma, and now transgenerational trauma,

During this March 2022 conference, we will discuss various topics related to inter- and transgenerational transmission of trauma and resilience, which will include personal discoveries of family’s patterns of communication as they relate to traumas of past generations; and experiences of groups that were denigrated by corruption and despotism of the leaders or/and aggression from other groups. We will also look into neurobiological vicissitudes of the modes of inter- and transgenerational transmission of information, as well as how we can prevent the traumatic transmission and promote transmission of hope, resilience, strength, and healing.

Our speakers/panelists are: Martin Miller, David Celani, Marc-Andre Cotton, Doris Leicher, Gabriella Becchina, Eva Fogelman, Peter Petschauer, Amy C. Hudnell, Jun Lu, and Inna Rozentsvit. During each of two days, there will be time for questions and answers with each presenter and general discussion.
