From generation, to generation. Ghosts from the past


About The Event

This ISPS-Lowlands conference will take place on a location in the Netherlands where during World War II there was a Jewish mental institute. All the psychiatric patients and also the nurses were transported to Auschwitz and killed by their arrival in the camp. A location that now has a memorial centre and where mentally disabled persons are living and working. Professionals as well as people with lived experiences will give a talk or a workshop. The purpose of the conference is to sensitise people to the impact of trans-generational trauma on families and on a person with lived experience of psychosis. We hope to create a larger field wherein we examine the question whether this approach is helpful to better understand the content of a psychosis. By knowing the larger context and the history of the family we assume that we can better understand what the family needs. Working in such a way can probably stop the chain of transmitting trauma through the generations and a more safety environment for holding and containing can be created.
