It’s All in the Genes: How Trauma is Woven Into Our DNA

Register Here

Presented by Carol Olson, Licensed Professional Counselor, Board-certified Art Therapist, and Development Director for the Action Alliance.

Intergenerational trauma is not a new concept for advocates helping survivors deal with their past and present. Now, science is taking this concept even further – suggesting that our genes can carry memories of trauma experienced by generations past and that this can influence how we cope with stress and trauma. The implications of this new science on how services are provided to survivors of trauma are profound.

This webinar will examine this new science and how it can transform the provision of services to survivors.
