Adult Ed Speaker: Dr. Edith Eger
Wednesday, April 14, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Dr. Edith Eger, sought-after clinical psychologist and lecturer, will speak on her book The Choice: Embrace the Possible, which details her experiences in the Holocaust and her journey of healing. Dr. Eger spent decades struggling with flashbacks and survivor’s guilt, and was determined to stay silent and hide from the past.
After returning to Auschwitz after 35 years, she was finally
able to forgive herself and heal. Her remarkable personal memoir is interwoven with moving stories of those she has helped tap into their full potential and shape their best destinies. She explores how we can be imprisoned in our own minds and shows us how to find the key to freedom.
Dr. Eger holds a faculty appointment at UCSD and also serves as a consultant for the U.S. Army and Navy in resiliency training and treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
