What we do


Undercurrents: Historical Trauma and Transgenerational Transmission with Jill Salberg, PhD, ABPP ~ May 15, 2021

At this time of historical, cultural, social and political upheaval, many of us are processing and incorporating the impact of external events on our clients and their families into our work. Historical as well as personal trauma often adversely impact our clients’ families and cast shadows on their internal and interpersonal development. As psychotherapists and psychoanalysts, we are broadening our lens beyond the intrapsychic and interpersonal to include the historical and transgenerational. In considering the appearance and impact of intergenerational transmissions of trauma, Dr. Salberg examines the dissociative states of mind that cross from parents to their children.
