Podcast: Intergenerational trauma and you — how ‘real conversations facilitate healing – The Calgary Journal

Feb 28, 2019

Audra Foggin, a Sixties Scoop survivor who teaches social work at Mount Royal University (MRU), believes the best way to unlock understanding and healing surrounding intergenerational trauma is through inclusive, open conversation.

“I look at my sons and they have suffered from pieces of intergenerational trauma but they are stronger than it. They are out there at law school doing great things.

They know who they are because I have made that effort to reconnect them.”
