Poverty. Genetics. Family dynamics. Environment. These and other factors contribute to an array of traumas passed down from one generation to the next. Come explore and experience with us what intergenerational trauma is, why it occurs, and how people in our community are getting the care they need to heal from trauma. The event will include: a performance by David Fakunle, who explores trauma through interactive story telling and African drumming; information and insights from Donna Jackson Nakazawa, journalist and author of Childhood Disrupted: How Your Biography Becomes Your Biology And How You Can Heal; and first hand accounts of the power of trauma informed care from Debra Rock, executive director of LIGHT Health & Wellness Comprehensive Services. Learn, explore, experience and discover pathways to healing at this dynamic half-day event in conjunction with the exhibition Touched with Fire: A Family Tale.
