Subject:RE: Parents' Trauma and Bonding

Do you mean unresolved childhood trauma and/or or unresolved ACEs? Are you referring to transgenerational transmission of unresolved childhood trauma and/or unresolved insecure attachment? If so, I would myself be very interested in the state-of-the-art on this. By the way, some authors use the term intergenerational transmission, but in my view (I am not a native speaker though) this would imply a two-way transmission rather than transmission from the 'parent generation' to the 'child generation' and so on (until the cycle is broken). Thank you.
