    Intergenerational Effects of Psychological Trauma
  •  
  • In this presentation, we, Alejandra from Mexico and Mari from Venezuela, will share our trajectories in academia as newcomers to BC, Canada. We reflect on our paths over the past three decades and explain examples of major transitions and decisions− those turning points that end up shaping our lives. Particularly, we will highlight our strengths, explain our challenges, and expand about the transformations we have lived and become conscious about them. Finally, we will share our perspectives of what are implications for our children in this journey of being immigrants in Canada. Alejandra will speak about the process of making meaning as an immigrant in academia. She will narrate momentums, images, and stories that have impacted her journey in the BC institutions she has worked. Mari will speak to her “double life” experience, recognizing the ongoing value and the stress associated with her academic job responsibilities while witnessing and relating to social and political instability in her home country.
