About the Talk

Leaving the Shadow of Pain: Responses to Trauma – Healing amid the COVID-19 Pandemic

Prof Doris Gray

Prof. Doris H. Gray shares her reflections on human responses to trauma especially when it is kept secret and on attempts at healing that transcend boundaries. She offers insights on how individuals recover from trauma, in particular when official procedures for redress and professional help are not available. She challenges conventional notions of forgiveness and reconciliation, which often put the pressure on victims to move forward. Most of all, Gray finds that victims’ efforts to come to terms with trauma are not disconnected, but are related across time, culture, religion and geography.
