Intergenerational Trauma and Lateral Violence in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities

Back to search results

Lateral violence is increasingly identified as a significant concern within Aboriginal communities both in Australia and internationally. Emerging literature argues that intergenerational trauma is closely associated with lateral violence, yet there is very little empirical research that explores the relationship between lateral violence, intergenerational trauma, and how this impacts on the lived experiences of Aboriginal people and communities. Using Indigenous research methods that promote the ongoing engagement and collaboration with Aboriginal communities, this study will seek to develop an understanding of lateral violence in Aboriginal communities to inform political and community based healing approaches for addressing lateral violence.
