Webinar Date : 
Thursday, December 14, 2017
Description: 

When an individual misuses substances, family members, friends, and their communities are affected. But when there are generations of substance misuse in a family or community, the impact can be profound. Understanding and addressing intergenerational trauma can help prevention practitioners identify and implement prevention approaches capable of interrupting this cycle. This archived webinar offers an introduction to intergenerational trauma and its link to substance misuse. It explores data on what drives intergenerational trauma, examples of how intergenerational trauma can surface, and ways prevention practitioners can support and implement trauma-informed prevention approaches.
