Intergenerational Trauma & Unprocessed Grief
What is It? How do we address it?

Presenter: Raina LaGrand, LMSW, MPH, CYT | Owner/Therapist, Root to Rise Somatics, Ann Arbor, Michigan

Trauma inherently involves grief in that it can take things away from us and it can leave needs unmet. Intergenerational trauma, however, can be particularly complicated to address in that the initial source of the trauma is in the past. While many of our ancestors relied on cultural resources for processing grief, such resources have been undermined as a result of colonization and other ongoing oppressions. As a result, people with both oppressed and oppressor identities experience unprocessed and cumulative grief that has direct impacts on emotional and interpersonal functioning. In this workshop participants will explore the impact of unprocessed grief related to intergenerational trauma on individuals and communities, as well as consider the role of culture and community in healing.
