Heritage Lecture Series
Ilga Svechs '58, speaker
Wednesday, April 9, 2013
Please join us to hear Dr. Ilga Svechs '58 for the inaugural Heritage Lecture on Wednesday, April 9, 2014.
Ms. Svechs will speak about, "Hearing and Helping Traumatized Persons." The denial of trauma to the self and others is an attempt to cope with the experience of trauma. Dr. Svechs will address issues related to hearing and responding to traumatized persons in the context of different ages in life—children, adolescents and adults—noting how a Christian perspective can be particularly helpful. She will also reference her own experience as a young girl traumatized by her Latvian family’s displacement to a Nazi relocation camp in World War II. Read more about Dr. Svechs from Spark magazine.
Dr. Svechs is a currently practicing psychotherapist from Cleveland, Ohio with a Ph.D. in developmental psychology from the Union Institute and was a long-time faculty member at Case Western University in Cleveland. She graduated from Calvin in 1958 in sociology and earned her master’s in social work from the University of Michigan.
