Taking Action Together: “Trauma & Atrocity: The Boundaries of Understanding and Emotion” with Dr. Danny M. Cohen

Zoom

When mass-violence fills our screens, we can choose to engage or switch off. But what can’t we control? How can we navigate our visceral emotional responses, including vicarious trauma? How should we respond to the unexpected responses of other people? And when we try to confront and learn about hate-fueled atrocity, what must we admit that we will never understand? Join Dr. Danny M. Cohen, a writer and professor at Northwestern University, in this exclusive webinar on managing our emotions to rise to the present moment. An expert in Holocaust memory and education design, Danny will equip us with the tools we need to process major world events in real time.
