Collective trauma is a cataclysmic event. It not only threatens the physical existence of the individuals and groups involved, but also constitutes a crisis of meaning.
In this presentation, we will distinguish between individual trauma and collective trauma, and delineate the commonalities and differences between types of collective trauma. We will also discuss the impact of collective trauma at the immediate level and over time through collective memory.
Because collective trauma is transgenerational, it continues to affect subsequent generations of the group involved across time and space. Some of these effects are deleterious, such as the influence of collective historical trauma on contemporary intergroup conflict. But others are constructive, such as the effects of trauma on collective vigilance to threats and group survival.
We will also present the process by which trauma may culminate in a system of meaning that allows groups to redefine who they are and where they are going.
At the conclusion of this workshop, attendees will be better able to—
- Understand what collective trauma is; how it is similar to yet different from individual trauma; and how there are distinct types of collective trauma
- Understand the effects of collective trauma on individuals and communities both immediately and long-term
- Learn from history as to how different people facing different traumas coped with the trauma that often shaped their national identity
- Understand how collective trauma—that is in essence a destructive force—may be redirected into a constructive meaning-building process
- Identify the factors that predict destructive vs. constructive responses to collective trauma
