B-14 - Understanding Intergenerational Trauma in Kinship Care: A Workshop for Social Workers (part 1)

Understanding the impact of the cycle of trauma in a family is the key for family members to stop passing it on. With a three-generation lens and a trauma focus, this workshop shows how to support kinship caregivers with fresh understanding of ways both strength and pain are passed from generation to another. Kinship caregivers can then use this knowledge for the sake of the children and the children’s parents. Interactive discussion of practice dilemmas will occur throughout the workshop.
