Transgenerational Trauma Awareness Day 2023

Watch the recording from our webinar with Professor Siobhan O’Neill and Dr Colette Ramsey, and access some additional resources.

We were delighted to host a webinar this morning to acknowledge Transgenerational Trauma Awareness Day.

Mental Health Champion Professor Siobhan O’Neill and Dr Colette Ramsey from University of Ulster discussed Embedding trauma-informed practice in peacebuilding interventions for children and young people before addressing a range of insightful questions from attendees.

“Being trauma informed, at a basic level, means asking not ‘What is wrong with you?’ but instead ‘What has happened to you?’. It’s about asking what has happened in our past that has lead us to feel or behave in a particular way.” Professor Siobhan O’Neill, Mental Health Champion
