Presented by Bea Hollander-Goldfein Ph.D., LMFT

Dr. Hollander-Goldfein, a licensed clinical psychologist and marriage and family therapist, is the director of the Transcending Trauma Project (TTP). She will discuss findings that emerged from the project that are already making major contributions to the fields of trauma, coping and adaptation and intergenerational transmission. 

The project conducted deepened life histories with survivors designed to elicit thoughts, feelings and internal experiences in order to understand how survivors coped and how they were able to rebuild their lives after the war. TTP also conducted deepened life histories with the children and grandchildren to explore how the parents’ experiences impacted the next generation.

Dr. Hollander-Goldfein lectures on a variety of clinical topics including the process of therapy, conflict management, infertility, spirituality and the psychological legacies of the Holocaust. She has co-authored two books, “Transcending Trauma: Survival Resilience and Clinical Implications in Survivor Families” and “Narrative Reflections: How Witnessing Their Stories Changes Our Lives.” Dr. Hollander-Goldfein is a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional.

The event is being offered in partnership with Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas (JCRC) and Jewish Family Service of St. Paul (JFS). It is free and open to all.
