Dr. Irit FelsenDr. Irit Felsen, adjunct professor at Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology, held an educational program on June 19, 2019, at the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust titled “Understanding the Impact of Trauma on Holocaust Survivors Facing the End of Life: Examining the Past to Improve Care in the Present.”

“This topic has been extremely personally important to me,” said Dr. Felsen, “having observed both personally, as a daughter of survivors, and professionally, as a psychologist working in medical settings, the need for educating healthcare professionals about how to provide trauma-informed care to trauma survivors.”

The presentation was part of a longer program that included testimony from two Holocaust survivors, a presentation on palliative care and cultural sensitivity, a Q&A session and an exhibit tour.
