Here are five questions to ask yourself to determine if there is a possibility that your life has been touched by intergenerational trauma:
- What is your greatest complaint about your partner?
- What are some adjectives and phrases you would use to describe your mother and your father?
- What is your worst fear?
- What’s the worst thing that could ever happen to you?
- What tragic events occurred in you family history?
