Our Associates Action Trauma are delighted to announce the launch of its Virtual Intergenerational Trauma Conference, bringing together over 3,500 delegates on 19th and 20th January 2021.

This important international event brings together world-leading authorities and experts in the field of intergenerational trauma and trauma recovery.  Understand and be aware of the many factors surrounding intergenerational trauma and look deeper into inherited behaviours and epigenetics.  As trauma is passed down from generation to generation, the impact it has on the expression of our genes can be hugely significant.  This new field of study uncovers the roots of pain so that present generations may be healed and future generations might not be impacted. 

Delivering a full schedule of dynamic thought leaders and experts in the field of trauma over 2 days, delegates will gain the knowledge and skills to make a difference to people within your community, classroom and their own professional practice and development.

During the two days you will have the opportunity to:

  • Network with over 3,000 professionals from around the world on a digital platform
  • Learn from World-Leading experts
  • Take part in live Q & A Sessions   
  • Take part in breathing and mindfulness exercises
  • Observe panel discussions with leading experts.
  • Networking opportunities
  • CPD accreditation 

We are delighted to have international speakers such as Stephen Porges, Rachel Yehuda, Dr Felicity De Zulueta and Kenneth V Hardy along with so many other experts in the field of intergenerational trauma. Please see attached schedule below of all speakers and content over the two days. You can view full details of the event, including booking, on our brand new website: www.inheritedtrauma.org Book now and don’t miss out on this unique event. Tickets are priced at £98 for both days and each delegate will receive a CPD accredited certificate.

The Child Attachment and Play Assessment

This two-day conference brings together leading international and local experts to examine in detail how patterns of addictive, anxious or depressive behaviour can pass from generation to generation. It explores how the impact of trauma can be passed from one generation to the next and considers the contribution across the spectrum, from learned behaviours through vicarious andsecondary trauma to transmission at the genetic level. A great opportunity for learning and networking.
