The Choice: Embrace the Possible

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO - On Tuesday, October 9th at 7:30 p.m., Warwick's in La Jolla will host Dr. Edith Eva Eger to discuss and sign the paperback edition of her book, 'The Choice'

Born in Hungary, Eger is one of the few Holocaust survivors old enough to remember life in the camps.

Despite overwhelming odds, Edith survived the war and moved with her husband to the United States, where she raised a family and earned a Ph.D. in psychology.

Dr. Eger maintains a busy clinical practice in La Jolla, California, and holds a faculty appointment at the University of California, San Diego. She also serves as a consultant for the U.S. Army and Navy in resiliency training and the treatment of PTSD.

I am Dr. Edith Eva Eger. Since my childhood days in Hungary, friends and family have called me 'Edie'.

We lived a ‘normal life’, a happy life, uneventful in its quiet bliss.

Then it was slowly, yet suddenly, all taken away, altering the course of my life forever.

Though I could have remained a permanent victim –scarred  by what was beyond my control– I made the choice to heal.

Early on, I realized that true freedom can only be found by forgiving, letting go, and moving on. So I turned my life around and vigorously pursued a career in psychology.

Combining my formal education and my own life challenges, I have helped countless others lead full lives by moving beyond their problems –no matter how insurmountable they believed them to be.  

This is my life’s mission and I will forever strive to help people make the choice to heal and thrive. That’s a promise!
