Legacy Of Trauma: Supporting Students Affected By Intergenerational Trauma

December 3rd, 2021 from 9am-4pm 

Inherited Stress: Intergenerational Trauma in BIPOC Communities

Brittany Talley, LCPC, LPC, RPT-S


Most mental health professionals are aware of the impact that trauma has on a person's life. What we are still learning about is how trauma impacts the lives of future generations. This session seeks to take a deeper dive into the trauma that BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) experience as a result of their ancestry via epigenetics. 

River of Cruelty

Steve Halley, LSCSW and Dorthy Stucky Halley, LMSW

1pm - 4pm

The River of Cruelty is a model explaining how cruelty is passed from person to person and generation to generation. Through Family Peace Initiative’s “River of Cruelty Map”, participants will explore the impact of trauma and adverse experiences and explore the road to intervention.  This experiential presentation will demonstrate how adverse emotions from cruel experiences create a pattern of behavior that can be self-sabotaging and destructive.  Participants will become aware of how cruelty is often transferred from person to person and generation to generation. Ideas for intervention will be explored with specific strategies and tactics discussed to help regulate a dysregulated student. The power of relationships will be discussed  along with the use of the “internal-focused dialogue” will be presented.
