Antichi risentimenti e problemi irrisolti con le famiglie di origine possono vincolare gli adulti nelle attuali relazioni con i genitori o fratelli e influenzare negativamente le relazioni con i partner o con i figli. Questo articolo intende esplorare le modalità tramite cui vecchie ferite vengono riattivate all’interno di relazioni attuali e come contribuiscano alla trasmissione transgenerazionale di eredità dolorose e traumi. Vengono proposti degli interventi clinici con clienti adulti per "svegliarsi dall’incantesimo dell’infanzia", curare ferite transgenerazionali, e maturare nuove relazioni con le famiglie di origine. Verranno esplorati i danni causati dalla colpevolizzazione dei propri genitori in terapia e ciò verrà messo in contrasto con l’enfasi che Ivan Boszormenyi-Nagy pone sulle azioni di ricongiungimento e sulla maturazione di risorse di fiducia nelle relazioni intergenerazionali. La famiglia verrà considerata sia nel suo contesto culturale - includendo gli effetti stressogeni e le risorse di resilienza - sia nel contesto del ciclo di vita. In tutto il testo terremo in considerazione il tema dell’etica relazionale - ovvero come possiamo vivere in accordo con i nostri valori e "raggiungere il meglio di noi stessi" nelle relazioni transgenerazionali.
