Abstract: The entire history of both humanity and an individual is a series of traumatic events, each of which leaves its mark on the psyche of a person and society. The article describes modern approaches to the definition of transgenerational trauma, how it is formed in the past generation and transmitted to the next. Currently, positive and transcultural psychotherapy requires more research on the impact of macrotraumatic events as is transmitted through generations. In this study, we present the author’s theoretical model of transgenerational traumatic experience transmission in the framework of Positive Psychotherapy and propose the definition of basic transgenerational conflict as a type of basic conflict in Positive Psychotherapy.
