Generational Trauma Toolkit

Using genealogy research to recognise and release generational trauma

Living with trauma is like living with ghosts. The trauma impacts your current life but its origins are obscured by the past.

Living With Ghosts is perhaps the first online course in the world using genealogy research as a tool for recognising and releasing generational trauma—family trauma passed from generation to generation via epigenetic inheritance.

This course consists of 7 modules, each including videos, text lessons, quizzes and exercises (with downloadable workbooks).

This not a ‘one and done’ course that you can zip through in no time, get a certificate, and that’s it.

Generational trauma is something most people never even recognise, let alone clear. And clearing it can, quite literally, take years. Nonetheless, this course provides a structured framework to guide your genealogy research to identify potential sources of family trauma and resolve them as gracefully as possible.
