UPDATE: A Symposium About Intergenerational Transmission of Trauma and Resilience in Children of Holocaust Survivors, Friday January 20/2017 in Miami

On Friday January 20, 2017, I will give a talk at a symposium focused on the issue of intergenerational transmission in children of Holocaust survivor parents. A panel of experts will discuss, each from their own field of expertise, issues related to the transmission of effects related to parental trauma, as well as transmission of strengths and resilience in the children of survivors.


The symposium will take place from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm on Friday January 20, 2017, at the Watsco Center, formerly the Bank United Center, which is located on the University of Miami Coral Gables Campus at 1245 Dauer Dr, Coral Gables, FL 33146. The event is co-sponsored by the University of Miami, Jewish Community Services of South Florida,“Next Generations”, and Miami-Dade Holocaust Survivors.

The symposium is open to psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers and children of Holocaust survivors.
