Family Matters Video Series Online Discussion Group 2023

The Impact of Traumatic Events Over Generations

Online Discussion
Aug 8, 2023 (Tue) 7:00 - 8:30 pm

All families go through difficult times during the family’s life span. But, there can be particular times and events that leave a mark in the family… And the effects of this event are felt over several generations of the family.

A middle age man described, with tears in his eyes, how his grandmother would not accept her 4 year old boy (this man´s father) as her own son after being separated from him for 3 months.

The gentlemen considered this event as one that in many ways defined his father, himself and his children. This single, but traumatic event for the man’s father also explained many of the events that happened later in the life of his family.

How can we understand and better manage “self” when we confront previous family events affecting relationships in the present?

With me again is my colleague Mr. Douglas Murphy. Mr. Douglas Murphy. Doug has been a faculty member of the Georgetown Family Center since 1992. He received his graduate degree from Antioch College in Human Communication Theory. He trained in the Postgraduate Program at the Georgetown University Family Center from 1977 to 1981.

一名中年男子眼含熱淚地描述: “他的祖母與她4歲的男孩(該男子的父親)分開三個月後,仍不肯接受他作為自己的兒子” 。他認為,這件事從多方面定義了他的父親、他自己和他的下一代。對於該男子的父親來說,這事件不只是令他造成創傷痛苦,同時,也解釋了接下來在他的家庭所發生的很多事件。
