How Trauma Is Carried Across Generations

“Transgenerational transmissions take on life in our in dreams, in acting out, in “life lessons” given in turns of phrase and taught us by our family. Discovering transmission means coming to know and tell a larger narrative, one from the preceding generation. It requires close listening to the stories of our parents and grandparents, with special attention to the social and historical milieu in which they lived — especially its military, economic and political turmoil.”

Kirlian Photography at UCLA

“Kirlian photography is a collection of photographic techniques used to capture the phenomenon of electrical coronal discharges. It is named after Semyon Kirlian, who, in 1939, accidentally discovered that if an object on a photographic plate is connected to a high-voltage source, an image is produced on the photographic plate.[1] The technique has been variously known as “electrography”,[2] “electrophotography”,[3] “corona discharge photography” (CDP),[4] “bioelectrography”,[5] “gas discharge visualization (GDV)”,[6] “electrophotonic imaging (EPI)”,[7] and, in Russian literature, “Kirlianography”.”
