Addressing collective grief and trauma


Unnameable losses: The unmetabolized ambiguous grief of adult children of refugees

This lecture was part of the Collective Grief and Trauma Conference held in March 2021, co-sponsored by Cathy Malchiodi and Collectively Rooted. Linda’s presentation draws upon research literature as well as narrative reconstruction of lived experiences to expand the conversation about intergenerational trauma to encompass the impact of forced migration, combined with acculturation and enculturation pressures upon the subsequent generation. Unnameable losses cannot be grieved, and can manifest as clinical expressions of mental illness. Ambiguous grief – once named – will allow Generation 2.0 to forge a collective path of healing and reclamation.

Objectives

  • Identify the main stages of a refugee journey
  • Explain intergenerational trauma to encompass the impact of forced migration combined with acculturation and enculturation pressures upon the next generation
  • Discuss expressions of ambiguous grief and loss associated with generation 1.5 and 2.0 refugees
  • Differentiate strategies to utilize in clinical and community settings to facilitate individual and collective well-being and resiliency
