“Trauma, the Jewish Experience and Lessons for Post-COVID Mental Health” is the 2021 Morton E. Ruderman Memorial Lecture at Northeastern University. The panel discussion with Dr. Rachel Yehuda, Dr. Eva Fogelman and Dr. Danny Brom will be moderated by Dr. Lori Lefkovitz.
The Jewish experience includes a history of dislocation, trauma and resilience. World-renowned experts in the fields of trauma, epigenetics and mental health will discuss the implications of the research and clinical work they have done with Holocaust survivors, Israeli soldiers and their families. What lessons can we learn as we recover from a global pandemic and confront systemic racism and assaults on our democratic institutions?

Dr. Eva Fogelman is a psychologist and co-director of Child Development Research. She is a pioneer in developing therapeutic techniques for generations of the Holocaust and related historical traumas and training mental health professionals.

As director of Metiv, he has brought his expertise in trauma to the fields of education, community resilience, health and mental health care to increase the capacity of Israeli society to cope with ongoing existential threats.+ More... - Less...
