Historical Trauma and Cultural Healing in 2021
|Date||Wed, May 19, 1:00pm - 2:00pm|
Please join the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust for their discussion of historical trauma and healing in present.
Genocide, slavery, and displacement have affected far too many communities of people. While each community’s experience is different, massive collective trauma often results in cumulative emotional and psychological wounds that are carried across generations and remain potent in 2021.
Dr. Irit Felsen is a clinical psychologist trained at Yale University and in Germany and Israel. She has seen these types of cumulative wounds firsthand, as a researcher focused on the long-term effects of intergenerational trauma and a clinician with extensive experience working with Holocaust survivors and their families.
Join Dr. Felsen for a program exploring historical trauma and cultural healing with experts from Jewish, American Indian, and African American communities. In addition to Dr. Felsen, the discussion will feature:
A $10 suggested donation enables the Museum of Jewish Heritage to present programs like this one. They thank you for your support.
This program is sponsored in part through the Battery Park City Authority community partnership.
