Erben des Schweigens : Studie zu Aspekten transgenerationaler Weitergabe von Traumata in der Familiengeschichte von deutschen Vertriebenen nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg by Heiko Carsten Stein( )

1 edition published in 2017 in German and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis explores if and how transgererational transfer processes which are a concequence of mental traumata of displaced people in and after World War II still play a role in the lives of their descendants in the generation of the “grandchildren of war”. For one thing it looks at how the event of forced displacement specificly has had an impact on mental traumata and which symptoms have resulted, that are still perceptible today. Based on the symptoms five of the so called “grandchildren of war” have been interviewed in an empirical survey, in order to find out how those affected describe the effects of these symptoms on their everyday lives and which is the role of spiritual experiences. The findings of these interviews are compared to the theses and finally, should help to draw practical conclusions for councelling and offer help to diagnose problems
Traumatised communities : on the way towards reconciliation : a case study on Guatemala with special emphasis on churches in Guatemala by Marcus Weiand( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This thesis investigates the connection between community trauma and reconciliation. Based on a case study about how Guatemalans dealt with traumatic events, the thesis focuses in particular on the role of the churches in Guatemala. One of the main challenges that traumatised communities face is dealing with the sufferings of the past. Notably the churches will need to think about their understanding of forgiveness and reconciliation within a traumatised community. All too often forgiveness is either denied because of the magnitude of the crimes committed or forgiveness is granted without asking for repentance and restoration. Consequently, communities tend to either disapprove of reconciliation or support a hasty peace process without sufficiently dealing with the victims' needs. The investigation was based on literature review and on qualitative expert interviews conducted in Guatemala. The interviewees were partly from organisations with a church background and partly from a non-church background. The results suggest that within the Guatemalan context more emphasis should be given to an approach that tries to actively involve the perpetrators when dealing with the past. In addition, bystanders should be encouraged to acknowledge their role within the conflict. Also, the churches should be prepared to help overcome communal trauma by encouraging ecumenical relationships and by actively supporting their members' spiritual growth in order to assist in the process of reconciliation. External intervention is important after traumatic events, yet it needs to take into account the spiritual landscape. And finally, love has to be considered as a core factor in trauma recovery
