Children of Holocaust Survivors Support Group

Let us help you help others get the support they need.

Participants will explore topics such as: increased vulnerability to stressful events and the impact of PTSD on the aging process; transmission of Holocaust trauma; the burden of being “replacements” for lost relatives; unresolved conflicts around anger complicated by guilt; acceptance of parents’ mortality; best caregiving practices for Survivors; and, of course, resilience.

The online video conversation will meet six Tuesdays

2 – 3 pm (Eastern Standard time)

Facilitated by: Dr. Judith Zackson

Fee: $120 per series (Sliding scale fees available as needed.)
