Event Description:

Three Ann Arbor psychologists have contributed chapters to an anthology entitled "The Ones Who Remember: Second-Generation Voices of the Holocaust" (City Point Press, 2022). This collection of 16 chapter-length memoirs explores the authors' lived experiences growing up in the shadow of the Holocaust. The presentation will discuss the transmission of intergenerational trauma and resilience, and the therapeutic benefits that arise from narrative writing. Participants will be able to describe the mental health benefits of autobiographical writing. Participants will demonstrate knowledge of intergenerational transmission of trauma and resilience.

Presenter Info: This presentation will be jointly given by Joy Wolfe Ensor, PhD, Rita Benn, PhD, and Fran Lewy Berg.
