These days, when even First Lady Michelle Obama is discovering the secrets of her family tree, the issue of how to uncover and confront the hidden stories in one’s background is particularly relevant. The author, a clinical psychologist specializing in helping people explore their histories gently and determinedly, discusses how she investigated her mother’s life story— including her survival during World War II—and how that exploration affected both mother and daughter. Dr. Wyshogrod will also share insights gleaned from her clinical experience on how to approach sensitive family material.
