APTN InFocus with Cheryl McKenzie
Trauma is something that can be passed down through the generations.
In this edition we examine what inter-generational trauma is and how Indigenous peoples in Canada are affected by it.
Dr. Gabor Maté also shares what his research has shown. He believes that trauma can be traced back to childhood experiences and the often resulting addictions as we grow older are a normal response to abnormal circumstances.
Our panel of guests share what they are doing to try not to pass on the effects of trauma to the next generation.
