    Intergenerational Effects of Psychological Trauma
  •  
  • Intergenerational trauma (IGT) is a contributory determinant of mental health and a framework for understanding the transgenerational effects of collective and mass trauma. However, despite the significant historical traumas experienced by Chinese people in the 20th century (e.g., the Great Famine and Cultural Revolution), there has only been one dissertation on the topic of IGT and the Chinese diaspora in Canada. This presentation presents a research project that examined parent and offspring narratives of intergenerational trauma in Chinese Canadian families. The presentation will include an overview of the literature, relevant historical events, findings from the research, and highlight a current study of intergenerational resilience. A narrative model of Chinese Canadian intergenerational trauma that incorporates Intergenerational Narrative Identity will be provided to illustrate how IGT narratives are constructed in this community.
