Elevate Eldercare

Dec 8, 2021

Dr. Edith Eger’s life took her from unimaginable despair to peace and a calling to help others. 

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.

This week on “Let Me Say This About That”, we explore her unique and powerful perspective on grief, hope, and forgiveness. We call them “Eger-isms” and offer why they resonated in our lives today. You’ll learn a bit more about Dr. Eger’s background and we’ll highlight a few select quotes from her book “The Choice”. Marla also discusses Logotherapy, developed by Victor Frankl – an important friend in Dr. Eger’s life.
