Intergenerational Effects of Trauma: A Biological Perspective

Intergenerational Effects of Trauma: A Biological Perspective

Dr. Yehuda was one of the first researchers in the field of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). She has spent her career far ahead of the curve, anticipating the use of biological markers involved in PTSD risk, susceptibility, resilience, and recovery. This video shows her Grand Rounds talk to the Department of Psychiatry on Tuesday, November 19, on epigenetics and intergenerational trauma. She discusses how the findings on this topic came about via her studies of Holocaust survivors and their children, and how knowledge of plasticity via epigenetics can be helpful in promoting resilience and well-being.
