Webinar - A Critical Look at Intergenerational Trauma and Substance Misuse: Implications for Prevention

When an individual misuses substances, family members, friends, and their communities are affected. But when there are generations of substance misuse in a child’s family or community, the impact can be profound. Understanding and addressing the intergenerational trauma that both produces and results from substance misuse can help prevention practitioners identify and implement prevention approaches capable of interrupting this cycle.

This webinar offers an introduction to intergenerational trauma and its link to substance misuse. We will present data on what drives intergenerational trauma, share examples of how intergenerational trauma can manifest, and explore ways for prevention practitioners to support and implement trauma-informed prevention approaches.
