It is argued that the lingering effects of Mass Trauma (MTE) of genocide and slavery created a trauma response, unresolved grief and historical trauma (Brave Heart 1995) and post traumatic slave syndrome (Leary 2001). The effects of major past historical traumatic events have impact not only on the generation where the traumatic event occurred but the generations that follow. This conference will raise awareness of the traumatic repercussions that effect the current generations focusing on slavery, Jewish and the American Indian Holocaust.
