Elderly People and Multigenerational Families in the Context of Recurring Traumatic Experiences: Perspectives from Israel

Irit Regev, PhDFamilies who live in war zones are exposed to traumatic experiences from recurring terror attacks. The family members share the same traumatic reality. Previous traumatic events as well as aging losses affects how they fear current traumatic events. How does the family function in the face of threatening situations? What is the role of multi-generational families who share the same traumatic reality?

Irit Regev, PhD, lecturer and researcher at the department of social work at Sapir Academic College, will help us examine the unique ways elderly people and their adult children cope during times of threat.

The session will also be livestreamed on Zoom. Please indicate if you will be joining us online when RSVP’ing.
