Naming, Understanding and Healing Collective Trauma
March 22, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm PDTCost: $20
About the Event
After bombings, earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, and other disasters, domestic violence rates increase by at least 50% in families for up to two years (and beyond). Collective trauma enters the bones of our families, changing childhoods, and creating imprints of stress and distress on people. Shame often follows the movement of collective trauma into family history – without any knowledge of the impact of collective trauma, people can ask themelves, “why does my family suffer from alcoholism, addiction, child abuse, or violence?” The naming of the impact of collective trauma is the first step in healing. What are the other steps that can be taken to support the healing of our families and our communities?
Join Sarah for an exploration that will take us into transgenerational understanding, compassion and movement.
