Call For Proposals
3 day program:
A Focused Dialogue and Deliberation – Defining and addressing the dynamics of inherited, unresolved communal trauma from one generation to the next, including historical understandings, the development and perpetuation of communal victim identities, exclusive cultural membership and rites of belonging, and implications for past, present and future relations between communities – particularly war and violence.
A Search for New Models and Methodologies – Developing new models and methods at the societal level for healing and preventing communal trauma and it’s transfer into future generations.
Transgenerational Trauma is seen as an underlying and potent fuel for the eruption of violence in the present and future. Understanding it’s dynamics and implications, and developing ways to effectively treat it, are seen as essential to healing and reconciliation within and between communities, establishing compassionate local and global relations, and achieving sustainable peace.
