Intergenerational Trauma & Adverse Childhood Experiences

Ireland-Two-Day Conference with Keynote Speakers Including:

Richard R. Brown, MD & Patricia L. Gerbarg, MD

Oct. 22 and 23, 2019 from 9 am to 5 pm

Titanic Exhibition Centre, Belfast, Ireland

This two-day conference brings together leading international and local experts to examine in detail how patterns of addictive, anxious or depressive behaviour can pass from generation to generation. It explores how the impact of trauma can be passed from one generation to the next and considers the contribution across the spectrum, from learned behaviours through vicarious and secondary trauma to transmission at the genetic level. 

Keynote speakers and programme content will explore: 

  • Refugees & displaced peoples; opportunities to learn from societal struggles around the world 

  • Developmental & Relational Trauma: An Intergenerational Perspective

  • An overview of Epigenetics exploring studies from holocaust survivors, the Vietnam War and 9/11  

  • Suicidal ideation and NI mental health statistics through the lens of intergenerational trauma  

  • Breathing and the autonomic nervous system: exploring the parasympathetic benefits of breathing techniques and exercises to reduce stressand bring about homeostasis. 

  • Witness the positive impact of breathing exercises on survivors of the Haiti earthquake & the Civil War in Sudan  

  • Practical tips to counter dysregulation from an early years’ perspective 

  • How to develop trauma resilient practitioners, social workers and youth workers.  ‘ACEs’ is on everyone’s lips. What will that mean? 

  • From CAMHS to a multi modal approach, find out how client-responsive and multi-disciplinary frameworks can make a significant difference to service users

If trauma can be passed from one generation to the next, so can healing. This event effectively provides two days of training on how we can progress from trauma informed to trauma responsive. It will delve into attachment theory and look at case studies giving first hand insights into real life struggles and how to overcome them.  

Full programme and more guest speakers to be announced soon!

Dr. Richard P. Brown and Dr. Patricia Gerbarg, pioneers of Integrative Mental Health, offer their groundbreaking Breath-Body-Mind™ workshop.

Discover a unique fusion of techniques drawn from qigong, yoga, Buddhist meditation, Orthodox Christian monks, martial arts, Open Focus Attention Training, and modern neuroscience, designed to activate communication pathways between the mind and the body, raise energy levels, regulate mood, enhance performance, reduce inflammation, dissolve pain, and enhance the sense of connection to oneself and others.

What the training will cover:

Dr. Brown and Dr. Gerbarg share a unique blend of mind-body practices—breathing, tapping, movement, and sound healing. Slide and videoclip presentations highlight their scientific research and humanitarian projects serving survivors of the 2004 Southeast Asian Tsunami, military combat veterans, 9/11 World Trade Center attacks, Gulf Horizon oil spill, war and slavery in South Sudan, genocide in Uganda and Rwanda, Middle East refugees, and Rohingya child refugees in Bangladesh.

Dr. Brown guides participants through rounds of movement with VRBPs, including Coherent Breathing and Breath Moving. The gentle movements can be done standing or sitting and are suitable for adults and children. Awareness and mindfulness of breath and changes in mental and physical states are cultivated. Attendees enhance learning by participation in group processes.

Clinical issues, indications, contraindications, risks, benefits, and guidelines for augmenting psychotherapy with VRBPs will be included. Cases illustrate restoration of connectedness/bonding through VRBPs that shift the individual from defensive states of fear to states of safety and bonding.

Who is the training for?
