This workshop focuses on the identification and treatment of trans-generational trauma. This type of trauma manifests across successive generations beyond the person’s own life history .

“This is an extremely important workshop for all therapists in order to find the appropriate resources to mitigate the cultural trauma experienced by the patient,” stated Kathleen Wheeler, PhD, APRN-BC, FAAN, professor at the Egan School.

While case presentations are EMDR focused, the concepts throughout the workshop are applicable to all forms of psychotherapeutic models and interventions.

Her specialties include integration of EMDR and psychoanalytic modalities, and the treatment of secondary, vicarious and cross-generational traumatization.

She is faculty, EMDR senior consultant, and trainer at the National Institute for the Psychotherapies Integrative Trauma Program. Dr. Alter-Reid specializes in working with first responders, including therapists, firefighters and law enforcement.

The presenters co-authored “The Trans-generational Impact of Anti-Semitism” featured in Mark Nickerson’s edited book, Cultural Competence and Healing Culturally Based Trauma with EMDR Therapy .
