Does generational trauma cause physical and psychological symptoms?

Generational trauma is trauma that passes through multiple generations, beginning when a group or individual is exposed to a traumatic event that generates distress.

Research has demonstrated that generational trauma may cause psychological symptoms such as:


Insufficient self-worth



Feelings of emotional numbness

Skill deficits (e.g., time management)

Symptoms of PTSD (e.g., social isolation, negative thinking patterns, loss of interest)

However, generational trauma may also cause physical symptoms, such as autoimmune diseases or frequent illness.
