A Multidisciplinary Conference on Life After the Holocaust. Exploring how we cope, adapt and rebuild after traumatic life experiences on Sunday,December 2, 2001 and Monday,December 3, 2001 at Har Zion Temple in Penn Valley, PA.
Who Should Attend: Holocaust and Trauma Studies scholars seeking new
insight into the legacy of survival; Mental health professionals working with survivor populations or focusing on resilience and coping in their therapeutic practices; Jewish communal workers exploring issues of Jewish continuity and identity; Educators facing the challenge of reaching youth with the lessons of the Holocaust that foster personal growth; Survivors and family members seeking to learn more about themselves; and Members of the community interested in belief systems, healing and resilience.
Since 1993, the Transcending Trauma Project (TTP) at Penn Council for
Relationships has been studying how survivors reconstructed their
shattered lives after the Holocaust. To date, more than three hundred
Holocaust survivors, their children and grandchildren have been
interviewed. Through this process, we are studying how individuals cope,adapt and recreate their lives after experiencing traumatic life events.
By also studying the transmission of identity, personal faith, and
family continuity, we are able to examine the intergenerational impact
of these issues on survivor families.
