WISeR presents Inspiring Speaker Dr. Edith Eger, renowned trauma recovery therapist and acclaimed author. She shares her heroic story as indomitable survivor of Auschwitz and her highly anticipated memoir, "THE CHOICE: Embrace the Possible".
Today Dr. Eger is 89 years old. She maintains a busy clinical psychology practice in La Jolla, California, holds a faculty appointment at the University of California, San Diego, and regularly gives lectures around the country and abroad, also serving as a consultant for the United States Army and Navy in resiliency training and the treatment of PTSD.
Dr. Eger inspires and empowers diverse audiences, from Navy SEALs to clergy and religious groups, legislative caucuses to medical professionals, and to survivors of domestic abuse.
Dr. Eger has appeared on numerous television programs including The Oprah Winfrey Show and a recent CNN special commemorating the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.
“The Choice is a gift to humanity. One of those rare and eternal stories that you don’t want to end and that leave you forever changed. Dr. Eger’s life reveals our capacity to transcend even the greatest of horrors and to use that suffering for the benefit of others. She has found true freedom and forgiveness and shows us how we can as well.”
—DESMOND TUTU, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate
“Edie Eger’s WWII-era experiences and her subsequent growth and life path is an incredible journey and victory of the human soul over the pain of human degradation.”
—STEPHEN ROBINSON, CEO, MAGIS Group LLC, specialist in Optimal Performance under Stress (OPS) training
“In the years of my work in the trauma field no one has inspired and encouraged me more than Dr. Eger. . . . I am confident this book will have an enduring impact for a very wide audience.”
—U.S. Army Colonel (Ret.) CHARLES W. HOGE, MD
