REMINDER: TODAY: An Event in Williamsburg for Caregivers of Holocaust Survivors

On Wednesday November 28 at 6:30 pm, I will be making a presentation entitled “The Impact of Historical Trauma on Relationships Between Elderly Holocaust Survivors and Their Adult Children Caregivers” at the Pesach Tikvah Enrich program in Williamsburg. This event is open to women who are caretakers of a Holocaust survivor parent(s) but reservations are required. See the flyer below for further information.

This presentation will address the relationships between care-taking women and their elderly Holocaust survivor parents, and will aim at identifying the sources of stress, normalizing some of the feelings that many caretakers express during this difficult journey in the life cycle of Holocaust families, and offer some suggestions about enhancing resilience, self-compassion and self-care.
