Please join Rounds promptly by the start time, as we will be locking the session after a 5-minute grace period to make the space as secure as possible. For our October Rounds we are truly honored to host acclaimed author and psychiatrist Judith L. Herman, MD, author of the groundbreaking Trauma and Recovery, hailed by The New York Times in 1994 as “one of the most important psychiatric works to be published since Freud.” Dr. Herman has recently returned to publishing with a new book, Truth and Repair: How Trauma Survivors Envision Justice, in which she argues that trauma is, at heart, a social problem rather than only an individual one. “Drawing on interviews with survivors,” writes The New York Times, “[Herman] lays out a theory of justice designed to help them heal, centering on collective acknowledgment of what they have suffered.” Herman is a Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, Director of Training at the Victims of Violence Program in the Department of Psychiatry at the Cambridge Health Alliance in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and a founding member of the Women’s Mental Health Collective. Dr. Herman will be joined by moderator Mary Sormanti, Ph.D, MS, LCSW-R. If you are unable to join for any reason, a recording of our Virtual Narrative Medicine rounds will be made available following the live session on the Narrative Medicine YouTube channel.
