Session 69: Healing Intergenerational Trauma

The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a Licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible version of ourselves.

Today’s episode features my conversation with Shaketa Robinson-Bruce, a National Certified Counselor and Licensed Professional Counselor in Atlanta, GA. Shaketa and I chatted about the definition of intergenerational trauma, what this looks like in our community, how it impacts our relationships, how therapy can help to heal from intergenerational trauma, and she shared her favorite books about this topic in case you want to read more.
