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:Defining Transgenerational and Intergenerational TraumaThe Manifestation of Intergenerational TraumaHow to begin the journey of Healing from Intergenerational TraumaGuest Info:Terrance DawkinsIf you find this podcast helpful for you or someone you know, I invite you to share with others, subscribe to the show and follow You Are Not Your Trauma Podcast on Facebook & Instagram.Subscribe to You Are Not Your Trauma podcast on iTunes, Spotify, Google Podcasts & AudibleHelp support the mission of the show by donating at http://donate.youarenotyourtrauma.com/.  Your generous contribution will enable continued creation of empowering content and positively impact the lives of those affected by trauma.Visit www.youarenotyourtraumapodcast.com\ to get details on upcoming episodes and guestsFollow You Are Not Your Trauma Podcast on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/youarenotyourtraumapodcast and Instagram https://www.instagram.com/youarenotyourtraumapodcast/Do you have a personal or professional experience with trauma that you’d like to share on the show? Send an email to contact@harrietmharris.com.Get a copy of Stop Stopping Your Success at  www.stopstoppingyoursuccess.com.Interested in advertising your business on You Are Not Your Trauma podcast?See the details here: https://www.harrietmharris.com/podcastad
