Summary

Transgenerational Trauma and Therapy presents the transgenerational, psychological impacts of trauma, and the clinical work on it. The book's expansive insight explores the psychology of the massive, collective trauma, and provides new ways of understanding the serious after-effects of man-made suffering.

In this book, Bakó and Zana employ their original concept, ‘the transgenerational atmosphere’, to fully comprehend many familiar phenomena in a new theoretical framework, exploring the psychological impact of trauma on the first generation, the mode of transmission, the effects on future generations, and therapeutic considerations. Crucially, Transgenerational Trauma and Therapy explores the psychological effects of collective, societal traumas on whole groups of individuals. Beginning with the direct, deep psychological effects of individual trauma, and then exploring the impact of collective trauma over generations , it deals particularly with the role of the social environment in the processing of trauma, as well as its hereditary transmission.

Rich in rich clinical material and methodological suggestions, Transgenerational Trauma and Therapy will appeal to mental health professionals, including psychiatrists, psychologists, psychoanalysts and social workers, in addition to professors in other academic disciplines, such as sociology, history, philosophy and anthropology.
