Beyond Trauma: A Two-Day Workshop for Descendants of Holocaust Survivors

with Armand Volkas, LMFT, RDT/BCT, and Sylvia Israel, MFT, RDT/BCT, TEP, Iudita Robicsek  
Presented by:
Living Arts Counseling Center, 
Healing the Wounds of History 
&  Bay Area Moreno Institute
Three therapists, who are children of Jewish Holocaust survivors, come together to offer two days of exploration, transformation and healing for members of the first, second and third generation. 
Using the power of sharing our stories with other descendants of Holocaust survivors, we will illuminate, explore and, where needed, transform the impact of our historical legacy.

Honoring the lives of our ancestors, we will focus on the effect our historical inheritance has had on our beliefs, our bodies and our spirits. Drawing from various experiential methods including Drama Therapy, Psychodrama, Voice Dialogue, Embodied Awareness, Expressive Arts Therapy and Ritual, we will examine our individual intergenerational trauma and give creative shape and meaning to our legacy.

Come support each other on our healing journeys in post-traumatic growth as we respond to the following questions:
  • What have we inherited from our Holocaust legacies?
  • What strengths and vulnerabilities has our legacy given us?
  • Whose Story are we living?
  • How and where in our bodies do we carry the trauma of history?
  • What needs healing and what needs transformation?
  • How do we embrace both the dark and the light of our inheritance?
Join us for this rare opportunity for healing work with other descendants of the Holocaust.
