Dr. Hadas Wiseman, a professor in the Department of Counseling and Human Development at the University of Haifa, Israel, is a clinical psychologist and an accomplished psychotherapy and personality researcher. She has also been studying intergenerational trauma and is the senior author of Echoes of the Trauma: Relationship Themes and Emotions in Children of Holocaust Survivors (New York: Cambridge University Press, 2008).
In her lecture, Dr. Wiseman will discuss her research on second-generation Holocaust survivors, specifically their intergenerational communication style of “knowing” and “not knowing.” She will also share her findings about the experiences of the third generation, which she refers to as “echoes of the echoes.”
Dr. Wiseman is the current Past President of the Society for Psychotherapy Research (SPR).
The talk is highly relevant for practicing and aspiring clinicians, particularly those interested in the long-term effects of massive trauma and how these are passed from one generation to the next.Part of the Changing Nature of War and Peace initiative.
