We know that addiction “runs” in families. Now we are learning more about how addiction is frequently a response to multi-generational trauma and how we can treat addiction more effectively and deeply with tools to address multi-generational trauma.

In this experiential workshop titled Addiction as a Response to Multi-Generational Trauma,  instructed by Karen Carnabucci, LCSW, TEP, we will explore the interplay of trauma within past generations and how it impacts anxiety, trauma and addiction in the present generation. The material is applicable to addictions of all kinds, including alcohol, prescription and street drugs, nicotine, sugar, pornography, hoarding, gambling, overworking and spending. In this training workshop, you will learn:

• The basics of the generational transmission of trauma.

• How the “Orders of Love” derived from Family and Systemic Constellations can help pinpoint the origins of the trauma.

• How social history questions can be adapted and expanded to gain information about possible ancestral trauma.

• Activities that can inform, soothe and heal addicted and substance-abusing clients who have trauma in their immediate and ancestral families.

Presentation methods will include lecture, experiential activities and demonstration, group discussion and handouts. There will be ample time for questions, discussion and case consultation, as well as the option to address personal issues in a confidential atmosphere.

The fee for this training workshop is $85 if registered by Sept. 10 and $105 after. The tuition includes the training day; CE credits for social workers, marriage and family therapists and licensed professional counselors; psychodrama credit hours toward psychodrama certification; handouts; and healthy snacks.
