Complex Trauma- Overview, Intergenerational Transmission, and Treatment
This presentation will explore two forms of trauma exposure in early life related to the parent-child relationship:
1. Complex Trauma refers to chronic early maltreatment within a care-giving relationship. Complex Trauma is associated with pervasive disruption across multiple domains of functioning and child development, including attachment.
2. Intergenerational trauma refers to the effects of trauma experienced by a parent and subsequently transmitted to the children.
Attachment and other factors related to the parent-child relationship have been identified as important pathways of intergenerational trauma transmission. This presentation will provide an overview of Complex Trauma and its impact on development and brain function. It will also explore Intergenerational Trauma transmission and identify family factors that mediate this transmission. Lastly, there will be a discussion and overview of evidence-based strategies for assessing and treating Complex Trauma and Intergenerational Trauma, with an emphasis on attachment-focused approaches. Specific treatment techniques and challenges will be discussed in detail.
Presenters: Emily Becker-Weidman, Ph.D., and Jessica Bonumwezi, Ph.D.
