In this training, participants will engage in a conversation about race-based historical trauma in racialized communities, as well as the trauma responses and characteristics present among racialized parents and caregivers. We will also learn about the 3 processes in which ITT is transmitted to the next generation and educate ourselves on a few longitudinal studies that helped shaped the research results. The training will explore the strong connection between ITT & attachment as well as the relationship between the nature of traumas and parenting outcomes. Evidence-based intervention models will be presented, such as the Perinatal Interactional Model of approaching ITT within familial structures followed by some real-life case studies to apply the new learned skills.
