Collective Trauma

Collective trauma, meaning trauma for a group rather than an individual, can change the fabric of our communities and society as a whole. Collective trauma can be an isolated incident localized to a unique community (such as a school shooting or neighborhood fire) or a long ongoing system of oppression (such as segregation). Wars, natural disasters, and pandemics are examples of large-scale traumas that affect multiple communities at once, potentially changing the way people, governments, and communities interact, work, and think. Like generational trauma, communal trauma can leave long-lasting and complex wounds among its individual members.
