 The Great Hunger: A case study on intergenerational trauma transmission with clinical implications

Professor Michael O’ Loughlin 

 

Professor O’ Loughlin will present a case study on the Great Hunger in Ireland as illustrative of one of the many traumas Irish people have had to shoulder. He will explore particularly the role of silence and malignant shame in perpetuating trauma. Links will be drawn to the phenomenon of institutional abuse in Ireland, and to the kinds of narrative therapeutic strategies that have the potential to offer paths to healing.

Organiser

icap and IFCP

The Irish Forum for Counselling and Psychotherapy (IFCP) was established in 1995 (when it was called the Irish Counsellor's Forum) through the recognition of the need for a support structure for Irish practitioners working with Irish clients in the UK. Over time the group has evolved into being a network for Irish therapists and counsellors working in the UK regardless of their work setting whether or not they work with an Irish clientele.

icap is a registered charity which provides accessible, culturally-sensitive counselling and psychotherapy to Irish people, people of Irish descent, and those from other backgrounds living in the UK. icap was founded in 1996 to address the mental health needs of the Irish in Britain, and over the years we have developed a particular expertise in helping people with issues relating to their migration. Our therapists are highly experienced, and all are accredited by the BACP or UKCP.
