Experiences shape you, even ones that aren’t your own: they can also be inherited from your family. It is possible that your experiences of depression, anxiety, PTSD, and many other psychological conditions can be traced back to a traumatic event on your family tree. Join us in uncovering how a distant familial trauma can imprint on you today in this enlightening talk with Prof. Oonagh Walsh. Explore the role of epigenetics and the mechanisms through which trauma is passed down through generations. Obtain valuable insights into your family history, and begin to understand the profound ways that your family’s past is moulding your current psychological landscape. Take the first steps in healing intergenerational trauma through compassionate self-understanding, and gain practical tips in navigating the complexities of your past.

Doors open at 6.30pm, final entry is 7pm, talk starts at 7.30pm - come down early to grab a good seat!
