This paper proposes a model for studying the intergenerational transmission of historic trauma and grief, and examines the implications for individual and community healing in a contemporary context. It is based on a longer study prepared by the author in 2004 for the Aboriginal Healing Foundation, a body established and funded by the Government of Canada to address the impacts of emotional, physical and sexual abuse that were occurring at residential schools.
