Old wounds and resentments toward parents can negatively impact adults as they raise their own children or relate to their partners. 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.
1:45 PM - 4:45 PM EST
In part one, the instructor will ask participants to apply their own experiences to generate a personal framework for building an understanding of implicit bias. Part one will begin with determining a common definition of implicit bias and then move toward the evaluation of how our individual socialization creates the neural underpinnings of implicit bias. Our conversation will move towards understanding the neurobiological processes of implicit bias with the goal of creating a working model of brain processes. This model can be used as a guide to aid in articulating how differential brain function can ultimately generate an opinion/strong feeling about an individual or group of people without conscious recognition of the cognitive process.
Part two will build upon the understanding of implicit bias and begin to connect how implicit biases inform racism and transgenerational trauma. To understand how systemic racism can result in transgenerational trauma, one must have an awareness of the neurobiology of threat detection and stress physiology. An overview of the threat detection systems and stress physiology will be provided and used as a framework to provide insight into how it feels to experience racism or discrimination. With an understanding of the bodily senses that are associated with being the target of racism or discrimination, the conversation will focus on US history to provide a perspective of how systemic racism in the US continues to give rise to transgenerational trauma for Black Americans. Given current events in the US, this discussion will focus on issues of Black Americans, however principles of implicit bias, threat detection, and stress response are data of human physiology and neurobiology. Therefore, these principles can be applied to any human of any marginalized identity, hopefully helping us all have a little more awareness of our own body processes and reactions thereby giving a choice about what we do next…
