Intergenerational Communication of Violent Traumatic Experience Within and by the Dyad: The Case of a Mother and Her Toddler

Daniel S. Schechter, M.D.

This article considers the phenomenon of intergenerational transmission of trauma during the first years of life with particular attention to interpersonal violent trauma. A review of the literature is followed by a detailed case report of a violence-exposed mother and her initially 14-month-old daughter. This case report takes the reader from baseline assessment through multimodal treatment of the family and provides follow-up into the child's sixth year of life. Maternal communication of trauma-associated affect and memory traces via action and language in day-to-day interactions is discussed, along with a hypothetical mechanism to account for distorted maternal perception and disorganizing interactive behavior in the wake of violent trauma.
