The arc of Dr. Edith Eger’s life took her from unimaginable despair to peace and a calling to help others. This week, she joins “Elevate Eldercare” to discuss her unique and powerful perspective on grief, hope, and forgiveness – as well as the continued need to fight ignorance and hatred with love and understanding.
As a teenager, Dr. Eger survived the Nazi concentration camps – and the murder of her parents – by relying on her inner strength to remember that she was still a valuable human being despite the indignities and evil imposed upon her. She then went on to build an influential body of work as a psychologist specializing in trauma, encouraging others to find that same strength within during life’s disappointments, heartbreaks, and abuses.
In this deeply moving conversation, Dr. Eger shares her story and her outlook on enduring difficult times to find the peace and the good in yourself and others while also rejecting hate: When you change your thinking, you can change everything.
