Trans-generational and Inter-generational Trauma 

by Dr Elya Steinberg & Gerhard Payrhuber

Trans-generational trauma represents a form of trauma that has been
transferred from the generation of survivors who have experienced (or
witnessed) the catastrophe or atrocities directly. This could be a natural trauma
(like an earthquake or tsunami), or a man-made one (such as the Holocaust, or
the genocidal wars in the Balkans and Rwanda). It is also possible to examine
the ‘‘trans-generational’ transmission of trauma in a wider perspective, as
trauma passed through the relationship of ancestors and descendants as well
as the parent-child couple.
