Transgenerational Trauma and Therapy presents the transgenerational, psychological impacts of trauma, and the clinical work on it. The book's expansive insight explores the psychology of the massive, collective trauma, and provides new ways of understanding the serious after-effects of man-made suffering.

In this book, Bakó and Zana employ their original concept, "the transgenerational atmosphere", to fully comprehend many familiar phenomena in a new theoretical framework, exploring the psychological impact of trauma on the first generation, the mode of transmission, the effects on future generations, and therapeutic considerations. Crucially, Transgenerational Trauma and Therapy explores the psychological effects of collective, societal traumas on whole groups of individuals. Beginning with the direct, deep psychological effects of individual trauma, and then exploring the impact of collective trauma over generations , it deals particularly with the role of the social environment in the processing of trauma, as well as its hereditary transmission.

Rich in clinical material and methodological suggestions, Transgenerational Trauma and Therapy will appeal to mental health professionals, including psychiatrists, psychologists, psychoanalysts, and social workers, in addition to professors in other academic disciplines, such as sociology, history, philosophy, and anthropology.

Reviews

"Families, like nations, also transmit values, culture and creativity to future generations. This wonderful book is the proof. It opens the space for the readers from different horizons to pose different intelligent questions."

Haydee Faimberg MD,Training Analyst, Paris Psychoanalytical Society. Author of The Telescoping of Generations: Listening to the Narcissistic links between Generations. London/New York Routledge 2005

"This important book deal with topics which have been, for a long time, rarely approached in psychoanalytical publications. Writings about collective traumas and their consequences have stayed apart from clinical hypotheses and reports. The value of this book should be highlighted along these lines, given the fact that the authors live in a European region which has been subjected to the effects of these traumas. They bring to us, added to their excellent review of transgenerational trauma literature, their own and new constructions of ‘the transgenerational atmosphere and the transgenerational self-experience’."

Eva Weil, Société Psychanalytique de Paris
