How to avoid passing your stress and anxiety to your kids.

  Stressed? Anxious? – Don’t give it to your kids!: Transgenerational Trauma Workshop

In this presentation, explore how trauma impacts our lives across generations.  Mental adaptations to overwhelming and life-threatening events will be described, and the way these patterns of coping influence ongoing strategies of life as well as relational connections will be discussed.  In addition, the somatic impacts of adverse experiences will be outlined, including developmental impediments to brain integration, epigenetic effects on the regulation of gene expression, and the direct effect on stress related impacts on the immune, inflammatory, telomere, and cardiovascular systems.

The great news is that by exploring issues such as embitterment, insecure attachment, unresolved trauma, and neuroplasticity, we can see the empirically supported pathways toward healing that can directly address the ways trauma compromises our lives.

The presentation will combine discussions, experiential immersions, and community focused topics that can help promote the healing process.
