Conference Description

rd Annual Internationl Conference on
 "Transgenerational  Trauma:"

Communal Wounds and Victim Identities

October 15-18, 2014  ~  Amman, Jordan

~ Occurs Immediately Before Parallel T T Conference in Turkey ~

Conference Details at: 



A focused dialogue and deliberation
Defining and addressing the dynamics of inherited, unresolved communal trauma from one generation to the next, including historical understandings, the development and perpetuation of communal victim identities, exclusive cultural membership and rites of belonging, and implications for present and future relations between communities - particularly war and violence.

A search for new models and methodologies
Developing new culturally appropriate, practical models and methids at the societal level for healing and preventing communal trauma and it's transfer into future generations. 

Transgenerational Trauma is seen as an underlying and potent fuel for the eruption of violence in the past, present, and future. Understanding its dynamics, influences, and implications, and developing new ways to effectively treat it, are essential to freeing ourselves of fear-based beliefs, healing and reconciliation within and between communities, establishing compassionate local and global relations, and achieving a true and sustainable culture of peace.

Held in conjunction with:
- The Global Network for the Study of Transgenerational Trauma -  a multi-cultural, multi-disciplinary professional network engaged in the study of inherited, unresolved communal trauma, and the implications for violence and war within and between communities

- Conducting the Social Health Care (SHC) training and treatment program - a model for building local capacity for healing communal trauma

- Parallel T T Conference in Istanbul, Turkey:  Learn More About This 2nd linked Event

Sponsored by:
Common Bond Institute, International Humanistic Psychology Association,
Michigan State University, International Federation of Medical Student Associations

Endorsed by:
over 100 universities and professional organizations internationally

Official Partner of:
Charter For Compassion  &  Parliament of World's Religions

Purpose and Goals Include: 

 - Promoting a collaborative global network of permanent working study groups with cross-cultural representation - essential to universal understanding and culturally appropriate applications - that cooperate on researching and addressing intergenerational trauma: the Global Network for the Study of Transgenerational Trauma.

 - Providing an annual meeting place for these study groups to come together regularly to share knowledge and explore critical issues and applications. 

 - Development of culturally appropriate perspectives, treatment models, and methodologies at the societal level for healing and preventing the intergenerational transfer of unresolved trauma and communal victim identity, and training programs to teach these skills and understandings to individuals engaged in social healing.

 - Supporting the Social Health Care (SHC) training and treatment program as an exemplary treatment model for developing societies that are regions of conflict where resources are scarce.

 - Increase understanding, sensitivity, and appreciation of the implications of these psycho-social dynamics within and between communities, and how to help reduce and prevent the carry over of unresolved trauma and victim identity into subsequent generations. Vital to achieving this goal is providing public education to the general public, and enlisting the involvement, support, and cooperation of those profoundly influencing the next generation in learning societal identity, including parents, educators, religious leaders, cultural/societal representatives, those generating public media, etc.

 - Creating and compiling a body of knowledge shared globally with practitioners and researchers from related human service and relationship fields (including mental health, medical health, sociology, cultural anthropology, education, political science, religion & spirituality, etc.), conflict transformation and peace building activists, government representatives, public policy makers, community leaders, religious leaders, other stakeholders, and the general public. Facilitated by a virtual platform created for collecting and archiving research, conference proceedings, publications, training and treatment programs, and related materials into a multi-media resource library - including a professional virtual journal with a blend of scholarship, insight, and practical application - for the professional and lay public, as well as to political/community leaders, public policy makers, and educational systems. The platform will offer virtual work space for study groups with members located at a distance from each other, and a member blog.


The 4 day conference is a highly interactive learning community. Prepared workshops and presentations are designed to impart knowledge and skill, share research, and stimulate in-depth dialogue and deliberation leading to increased understanding, practical applications, and next steps.

Dialogue and deliberation are the essential engines of the conference.
As such, a central driving feature of the program is conducting focused topical panels, roundtables, and dialogue groups to actively engage all participants in addressing and investigating the many dimensions, symptoms, and implications of Transgenerational Trauma, and contributing their expertise, perspectives, and personal experiences.

Common Bond Institute

COMMON BOND INSTITUTE (CBI) is a US based NGO that grew out of the Association for Humanistic Psychology's Soviet-American (International) Professional Exchange. Since 1990 CBI organizes and sponsors numerous international, multi-disciplinary conferences, professional training programs for local capacity building in human services and civil society, and professional exchanges. It provides consulting, coordination, and networking support to assist newly emerging human service and civil society organizations in developing countries. Cultivating the fundamental elements of a consciousness of peace and local capacity building are seen as natural, effective antidotes to small group radical extremism and large group despair, as well as to hardship and suffering in the human condition. To this end, enabling each society to effectively resolve and transform conflicts, satisfy core human needs within their communities, and construct effective, holistic mechanisms for self determination, self esteem, and fundamental human dignity and worth is the purpose of our work. CBI is grounded in the application of humanistic psychology's principles in it's commitment to capacity building at both the grass roots and social institutional level, and in providing the individual in society with practical skills and visions for transforming conflict in their day to day lives. It is highly collaborative and works to actively form strategic alliances and partnerships with organizations, groups, and individuals dedicated to nurturing relationships locally and globally in creating and promoting an authentic world culture of peace.
