When people think of trauma, they often think of acute, dramatic situations, such as a natural disaster or automobile accident. Yet the majority of those who experience trauma experience a more subtle and chronic form that exists within their own family. Claudia Black, PhD, will discuss a portrait of addiction in the family, offering an overlay of how adverse child experiences are the foundation of emotional dysregulation fueling traumatic responses, including generational repetition. She concludes the presentation offering a seven-step process for healing.
