More info

On Februray 5 and 6, 2024, I will be presenting two different in-person programs in Boca Raton, FL. More information about these programs is given below, and   clicking on the images below will take you to the relevant registration page. These programs are sponsored by MorseLife Next Generations, who also offer additional programs throughout the year (see for more details.)

On Monday February 5, I will be presenting a one-day in-person workshop for second generation at Congregation Bnai Tora in Boca Raton. The workshop will address the multiple facets of our intergenerational legacy: what and how particular sensitivities and vulnerabilities, but also unique strengths and resiliencies, have been transmitted in our families. How do we manage the current challenges and opportunities of this phase of our lives, what does research tell us about the third generations, and what are the valuable aspects of our legacy, which we want to transmit further to future generations.

On Tuesday Februay 6, I will be presenting an in-person workshop for professionals working with Holocaust survivors and their descendants, as well as other survivors of collective trauma. The long-term effects of surviving the Holocaust on survivors and their descendants have paved the way to research on the impact of mass trauma in other populations. Unfortunately, other groups continue to be subject to terrible experiences, and the lessons from our families might allow healthcare providers to understand their needs and respond appropriately more immediately than was the case for Holocaust survivors.
