Multigenerational trauma is trauma that gets passed down from those who directly experience an incident to subsequent generations. This type of trauma can impact an individual by encouraging suppressing emotions, normalizing toxic behavior, and other negative coping skills such as substance abuse. Known family involvement in traumatic events i.e. Holocaust, long term family violence, and racial and cultural discrimination are all signs of potential multigenerational trauma being present. This trauma can lead to anxiety, depression, substance abuse, suicide ideation, and more if proper mental health care is not seeked. Trauma-informed care is a key component when treating an individual suffering from multigenerational trauma.
Trauma-informed care includes helping those who have been exposed to horrific, terrifying and catastrophic events as well as those who have experienced micro traumas. Being aware of internal as well as external triggers and continuing to cultivate awareness around what our triggers are, helps us regulate our emotions as well as our reactions; known as trigger awareness. Tracking our triggers, what we’re successful with as well as what you’re needing to improve, can help keep us moving into post traumatic growth and away from post traumatic re-experiencing. Read More
