In this short and insightful talk, we explore the often-unseen influence of trauma on the intricate dynamics between parents and their children. This session aims to uncover how past traumatic experiences of parents can silently weave into their parenting styles, behaviours, and emotional responses, thereby impacting the parent-child relationship.

Participants will be introduced to the concept of intergenerational trauma and its subtle yet profound effects on family interactions. We will examine how trauma can shape parenting approaches, influence emotional availability, and affect communication patterns within the family unit. This talk will provide a deeper understanding of how unaddressed trauma in parents can inadvertently affect their children, shaping their emotional development and family bonds.

This session is not just about uncovering hidden patterns; it’s also focused on healing and transformation. We will discuss strategies for parents to recognise and address their own trauma, fostering a healthier and more nurturing environment for their children.

Ideal for mental health professionals, this talk offers invaluable insights into the complex web of emotions and behaviours that characterise parent-child relationships influenced by trauma. Join us as we unravel the invisible thread of trauma and embark on a journey towards healing and strengthening family bonds.
