Our past does not simply disappear. The lasting effects of individual trauma are widely recognized. But what about the consequences of extreme trauma on an entire ethnic group? Wounds into Wisdom: Healing Intergenerational Jewish Trauma addresses the impact of both collective and personal trauma in a dramatic portrayal of the lasting effects of extreme stress on the descendants of those who first suffered it. The book reports on new research in neuroscience and clinical psychology in accessible terms, and then demonstrates how trauma can be healed and transformed into usable wisdom.
Fusing science, psychology, and ancient Jewish wisdom, Wounds into Wisdom offers a roadmap for Jews—and all people and groups with trauma history—who wish to seize their power and change their future. Gripping case studies and interviews with trauma survivors and their descendants from around the world demonstrate what Viktor Frankl called “the uniquely human potential to transform personal tragedy into triumph.”
