Myra Giberovitch

JCFS Annual General Meeting June 9, 2014 with Myra Giberovitch on 'Recovering from Genocidal Trauma

May 15, 2014

Myra Giberovitch, M.S.W., P.S.W., Adjunct Professor, McGill University School of Social Work will highlight her work on Recovering from Genocidal Trauma at the Jewish Child and Family Service Annual General Meeting and Volunteer Recognition on Monday, June 9th. Myra is affiliated with the McGill University School of Social Work as an adjunct professor, sessional and guest lecturer, and field placement supervisor. Her newly released  book, Recovering from Genocidal Trauma: An Information and Practice Guide for Working with Holocaust Survivors, guides the reader on how to understand the survivor experience, develop service models and programs, and employ individual and group interventions to empower survivors as they recover from tragedy and adversity. Her presentation will highlight her lifelong experience in working with survivors and her approach that focuses on resilience, challenges of ageing, and vulnerabilities related to traumatic experiences. Myra continues to be inspired by the survivors she encounters. “They are an example of the human spirit’s capacity to adapt, rebuild, persevere, and recover.”

The evening proceedings will also highlight JCFS’s many successful programs and services, and recognize long-standing agency volunteers for their support and commitment. The meeting will take place in the Berney Theatre, Asper Jewish Community Campus, 7:15 pm, and will be followed by a reception.
