You Are Not Your Trauma Season 2 | Episode 12: Healing Inherited Wounds: Discovering the Impact of Intergenerational Trauma

In this insightful episode, we turn our attention to a profound facet of trauma that remains hidden yet influential in many lives. This discussion unravels the intricacies of intergenerational trauma, a form of distress that isn't necessarily rooted in one's personal experiences but can instead stem from traumatic events that occurred in previous generations. These inherited psychological wounds subtly yet significantly shape lives, often persisting until someone bravely confronts, processes, and begins to heal this generational legacy of pain. Today’s guest, Terance Dawkins, a respected Licensed Independent Social Worker, introduces us to the complexities of intergenerational trauma, its manifestations, and the paths towards healing. 

Terance shares invaluable insights from his extensive experience in the field of mental health, enlightening us on how we can break the cycle and heal these inherited wounds.

Topics discussed in this episode:

  1. Defining Transgenerational and Intergenerational Trauma
  2. The Manifestation of Intergenerational Trauma
  3. How to begin the journey of Healing from Intergenerational Trauma
