Healing from Intergenerational Trauma

 
 

The Mending Broken Hearts programs provide culturally-based healing from grief, loss, and Intergenerational Trauma, especially for native peoples from the United States and Canada.

Unresolved grief is demonstrated in the many social issues that Native people experience, as represented in the "sick" forest illustration. Traditional healthy cultures have been made "sick" by the anger, guilt, shame and fear, passed on from generation to generation. This creates a "culture" that is shame-based. This sense of shame and unresolved grief contributes to the behavioral, emotional, physical, and spiritual issues that challenge wellness.

There are three steps in healing from Intergenerational Trauma.

 
 

Step 1: Train the professional (behavioral, mental health, substance abuse, re-entry) staff on the techniques of using the Mending Broken Hearts curriculum to heal unresolved grief in the community. This builds the infrastructure and support for the community as it enters the healing process.

Step 2: Create healing circles in the community to process the unresolved grief. Circles can be set up for specific groups in the community; i.e. Elders/Boarding School Survivors, Men, Women, and/or Youth.

Step 3: Create a healing forest and bring trainings to the community. This step builds support groups for the People and brings the community back to the sacred circle.
