JFS of Greenwich offers online support for Children of Holocaust Survivors

Jewish Family Services (JFS) of Greenwich is expanding its online support group programming to include a support group for Children of Holocaust Survivors. This group will be run by experienced, licensed social workers and the services are being provided using secure, state-of-the-art live video conferencing technology.

Participants will discuss concerns unique to aging holocaust survivors and their adult children. They will explore topics such as: increased vulnerability to stressful events and the impact of PTSD on the aging process; transmission of Holocaust trauma; the burden of being “replacements” for lost relatives; unresolved conflicts around anger complicated by guilt; acceptance of parents’ mortality; best caregiving practices for Survivors; and, of course, resilience.

The group meets the third Thursday of each month at 8 p.m. beginning Thursday, Dec. 17. All you need is a computer, tablet or smart phone with Wi-Fi access.
