Trauma: A Conversation with Israeli Author and Psychologist Ayelet Gundar-Goshen
Please join the Helen Diller Institute for Jewish Law and Israel Studies at UC Berkeley for a conversation with author Ayelet Gundar-Goshen and GTU Richard S. Dinner Center for Jewish Studies Director Deena Aranoff about trauma and healing. As a psychologist as well as a writer, Ayelet Gundar-Goshen is currently serving as an emergency worker providing mental health support to the victims of the Hamas attack on Israeli civilians. Themes of her recent book -- on trauma, fear, antisemitism, aggression, confusion, healing, the importance of relationships -- will inevitably thread their way into the discussion as Ayelet draws insights from her gaze both as a writer and as a psychologist.
Please note: this event has moved to a webinar format.
Ayelet Gundar-Goshen is an award-winning Israeli author based in Tel Aviv. She is also a clinical psychologist, has been a news editor on Israel’s leading newspaper, and has worked for the Israeli civil rights movement. One Night, Markovitch, her first novel, won the Sapir Prize for best debut. Her novel Waking Lions was a New York Times Book of the Year and won the Wingate Prize, and her novel Liar was Editor’s Choice in People magazine.
This event is co-sponsored by the UC Berkeley Center for Jewish Studies and the Richard S. Dinner Center for Jewish Studies at the Graduate Theological Union.
