Trauma—physical, emotional, and mental—can be passed down to us from our parents and family members in the way we are raised. As defined by the Office for Institutional Equity at Duke—Inter-generational trauma is a concept developed to help explain years of generational challenges within families. It is the transmission or sending down to younger generations, of the oppressive or traumatic effects of a historical event. In an intimate conversation, Mariam and Lina reflect on intergenerational trauma from their lived experiences as immigrants, and talk about the importance of trauma-informed healthcare.
