Naming, Understanding and Healing Collective Trauma
In the wake of natural disasters, extreme weather patterns, pandemics, and war, ripples of collective trauma shakes individuals, families and society as a whole. Without any knowledge of the impact of collective trauma, you may wonder about the behaviors in yourself and those closest to you. When we understand the impacts, and are able to name and acknowledge what we have been through, doorways to compassion open. Join Sarah for an exploration that will take us into transgenerational understanding and movement.
This is primarily a learning and neuroscience content webinar, including a small number of actionable insights and healing process work. If you are seeking healing and resonance practice opportunities, please see Sarah’s upcoming courses here
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?
