The International Journal of Communal and Transgenerational Trauma ( IJCTT ) is an international and interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal of the International Humanistic Psychology Association (IHPA).
Diversity of Content
It is an innovative, virtual, open access, and free publication, spanning a number of related fields reflecting a whole-person, cross-cultural perspective and exploration of the psycho-emotional trauma experience, from the individual to the communal level. As such, it gathers and disseminates a diversity of content and format delving into the dynamics and multidimensional aspects and intersections of trauma, and the process of unresolved profound trauma extending into future generations as transgenerational trauma.
