Title for the lecture: Symbiotic trauma and symbiotic entanglement – how trauma gets transferred from one generation to the other

Evidence from Psychotherapy shows that trauma gets transferred mainly via the bonding process between mother and child. A mother suffering from trauma becomes the source for a symbiotic trauma for her child in one way or another – of course mothers don’t want to do so, but the unconscious mechanisms to cope with a traumatic experience involuntarily lead to great difficulties in the mother-child-interaction; especially the lack of mothers to be emotional available for their children. Many types of mental illnesses can be explained by the symbiotic entanglement between mother and child on the base of the symbiotic trauma.
