How Trauma and Resilience Cross Generations


with Rachel Yehuda, Ph.D.

CEs: 6
Cost: $125

This event is sold out.

Recent advances in molecular biology, genomics, and epigenomics has now provided paradigms for understanding long term effects of stress. This presentation will focus on intergenerational transmission of trauma as a particularly enduring effect of stress. Most of the research has been conducted on adult children of Holocaust survivors, but has now generalized to include children of other trauma survivors such as children born to pregnant women who survived the world trade center attack on 9/11. The research has evolved into one that explains the contribution of early environmental experiences-including parenting-on highly conserved molecular and genomic processes. These changes in and of themselves do not signify pathology, but provide a paradigm for understanding long term effects of profoundly important events. The work has already led to a better understanding of biological risk factors for PTSD and predictors of outcome in response to trauma.

Objectives: 

  • To discuss biological mechanisms associated with Epigenetics (including preconception, in utero, and postnatal influences).
  • To discuss intergenerational transmission and risk for psychopathology in offspring.
  • To discuss enduring biological alterations.

Rachel Yehuda, Ph.D. is a professor and vice chair of psychiatry, and professor of neuroscience at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. She is also the Mental Health Patient Care Center director at the Bronx Veterans Affairs. She has published several hundred scientific papers and compiled over 10 books examining diverse aspects of traumatic stress, and has studied PTSD and resilience in combat veterans, survivors of genocide, interpersonal violence and terrorism, as well as in animal models. Her work has focused on neuroendocrinology, neuroimaging, genomic and molecular biological studies of trauma, experimental therapeutics (pharmacological and psychotherapy trials), biomarkers, genetic and epigenetic heritability, gender differences and suicide.

New York State Office of the Professions (NYSED) regulations require that participants must be present for the entire approved educational activity in order to receive a certificate for continuing education credits. There is no accommodation in the State regulations for late arrival, late return from lunch or breaks, or early departure. According to NYSED, in order to award social work CEUs; “When you offer a multi-day or multi-part course/educational activity, the learner must complete all parts in order to earn the certificate for contact hours, in the same way that a student must complete a semester-long course to receive college credit. You may not award partial credit for a program, even a one-day program, if the learner does not complete all requirements at that time.”


Cancellation Policy

Unfortunately, we cannot provide refunds for cancellations made seven working days or fewer before the event for any reason—or for no-shows.  We can provide credit towards a future workshop up to 24 hours before the event. After that, no credit will be issued.
