GenShoah of Southwest Florida – Special Presentation

Life’s Traumas:  How People Survive and Heal from Traumatic Experiences

Summary:  Have you or a loved one experienced life-changing trauma?  Whether one has survived the loss of a loved one, endured compromised parenting, random acts of violence, abuse, combat, or extraordinary horrors such as the Holocaust, there are universal ways in which people disconnect or dissociate in order to cope with overwhelming pain. Often these coping mechanisms prove to be the source of distress later in life, well after the traumatic events have passed. Thanks to scientific advances, we can now identify and treat people suffering from post-traumatic stress and dissociation. Based upon over twenty years of research and clinical practice, Dr. Steinberg will share insights about key ways that people survive and heal from traumas.  Drawing from reflective writings of trauma survivors, including Holocaust survivors, Dr. Steinberg will illustrate the creative defense of dissociation in one’s survival.  Come and gain an understanding for this life-sustaining psychological defense that affects the lives of millions.

Bio:  Dr. Steinberg is a Yale-trained psychiatrist in private practice in Naples, Florida.  Her popular book The Stranger in the Mirror: Dissociation, the Hidden Epidemic, provides education, hope and comfort for trauma survivors.  Dr. Steinberg is the developer of the standard diagnostic test for the detection of post-traumatic dissociation.  She has been selected for inclusion in “Best Doctors of America” by her peers for the past eighteen years.

The program will take place at Chabad Jewish Center of Naples, located at 1789 Mandarin Rd. in Naples.  There is a $5 suggested donation to cover the cost of refreshments.
