Join us for a one-day community workshop with Dr. Irit Felsen.
A sought-after international speaker, Dr. Felsen is an expert on the long-term effects of trauma on Holocaust Survivors and the intergenerational transmission of trauma to the children of Survivors (2Gs).
Part I 8:30am – 12:30pm
Intergenerational Transmission in Holocaust Survivor Families: How does the experiential knowledge of an event that took place before one was born impact the children and grandchildren of Survivors? How does a perspective of “dual reality” come to be represented in the lived experience of children of survivors? What are the mechanisms of intergenerational transmission of parental trauma and the effect on 2Gs? What is the role of epigenetics in understanding multigenerational transmission of trauma?
Part II 1:30pm – 4:00pm
Unique Strengths of Children of Survivors: Perspectives of the psychological strengths and vulnerabilities of children of Holocaust Survivors. Knowing one’s strengths optimizes the opportunities to capitalize on these traits and integrate them more consistently into daily life.
Lunch is included.
