Episode 3. Generational Trauma: The Effects of Violence on Children and Gender Roles

Patricia Castillo speaks about the generational trauma that can be inherited and the devaluing of women in traditional gender roles, which can lead to abuse and violence. She discusses the effects of violence and trauma on children and how it can shape their development and future relationships while challenging listeners to choose healing and break the cycles of abuse. We discuss how children’s brain development can be stunted in violent households and how this can lead to chronic diseases, addictions, and intergenerational cycles of violence. We emphasize the importance of seeking healing and changing cultural norms to prevent passing on the curse of domestic violence and abuse while providing insight into how to challenge abusive attitudes and beliefs in relationships.
