How to Talk to your Children about the Holocaust
Understanding how and when to address sensitive issues with your child can be a challenge. Join us for a presentation and discussion on how to talk to your children about the Holocaust. The evening will begin with a talk from noted psychologist, Dr. Dona Matthews, and conclude with facilitated discussions in groups of parents with similarly-aged children.
Dona Matthews, Ph.D., has worked with children, families, and schools. In addition to running a private practice with a focus on giftedness and other special needs, she was Executive Director, Millennium Dialogue on Early Child Development, University of Toronto, and founding Director, Hunter College Center for Gifted Studies and Education.
Co- presented by Facing History and Ourselves, Mabin School, Dr. Eric Jackman Institute of Child Study, Paul Penna Downtown Jewish Day School and Miles Nadal JCC, as part of Holocaust Education Week.
