Healing Intergenerational Wounds:
An Integrative Relational-Neurobiological Approach to Transform Family Relationships

Old wounds and resentments toward parents can negatively impact adults as they raise their own children or relate to their partner. In this workshop, Dr. Fishbane will explore ways to facilitate healing & dialogue in distressed relationships between adults and their families of origin, especially parents. Utilizing a resilience-based view & a relational-neurobiological approach, this workshop addresses family legacies & loyalties, resentment and blame, cutoffs, differentiation, boundaries, power, guilt, repair, and forgiveness. Gender-based and cultural beliefs that affect intergenerational relationships will inform the discussion. The neurobiology underlying emotional reactivity will be explored, along with interventions to facilitate emotional intelligence, relational empowerment, and healing where possible between the generations. Theory and techniques, with case illustrations, will be offered to facilitate intergenerational repair, promoting positive interactions and legacies into the future.
