Family legacies play a direct role in the formation of emotional symptoms and can cause repetitive patterns of behaviour such as the “anniversary syndrome” or “invisible loyalty” which are repeated from one generation to the next. Future generations preserve their loyalty and deal with unfinished business by accommodating to dysfunctional patterns in the family of origin and re-enacting similar life scripts.

Other Transgenerational topics covered are the practice of healing rituals, One-to-one Psychodrama, Group Psychodrama, Psychodrama on the Table, Sociodrama, Sociometry, Dream work, as well as Expressive and Body Therapeutic methods and techniques.
