Abstract: The article discusses the issues of inter-generational connection, family inheritance and the effects of inter-generational trauma on personality development. The results of the research on inter-generational transmission of behavior and relationship patterns are provided. The study involved three generations of women within one family. The researchers have revealed the relevance of the intensity of interpersonal interaction positions (relating to active and helpless orientations) and the attachment strategies in women of different generations within a single family, which indicates that the women of the older generation influence their descendants.
