Dr. Edith Eger

Work in Progress with Sophia Bush

Today on Work in Progress, Sophia is joined by Dr. Edith Eger (@dr.editheger)! Dr. Eger is a highly sought after psychologist, author, and keynote speaker who survived the Holocaust as a teenage girl and went on to thrive despite the trauma she endured. Edie, as her friends affectionately call her, obtained her doctorate in psychology and learned to use her imprisonment at Auschwitz as a powerful analogy for the prisons we create in our own minds. Her mission is now to inspire others to discard their limitations and find renewal and freedom within themselves. After becoming a New York Times Bestselling Author with her memoir, The Choice, Dr. Eger wrote a hands-on guide to overcoming trauma that just came out this fall called The Gift: 12 Lessons to Save Your Life. Somehow between her busy clinical practice in La Jolla and her many speaking engagements, this energetic 93 year-old made time to sit down for a chat! On today’s episode of Work in Progress, Sophia and Dr. Eger discuss the power of thought, how the most obnoxious person can be your best teacher, why “How are you doing?” is a stupid question, and how love is what you do rather than what you say. Dr. Eger also shares her harrowing accounts of arriving at Auschwitz, being forced to dance for Josef Mengele, and how she found the spirit to survive it all within her own mind.Support us by supporting our sponsors!

#144 Auschwitz Survivor Dr Edith Eger on How to Discover Your Inner Power

Feel Better, Live More with Dr Rangan Chatterjee

Today’s conversation will stop you in your tracks. It’s powerful, confronting and challenging and I am so grateful for my guest’s honesty, empathy and willingness to share the wisdom of her 93 years. Dr Edith Eger is a Holocaust survivor, psychologist and expert in the treatment of post-traumatic stress but above all, she’s an incredible human being with an extraordinary story to share. Her latest book, The Gift: 12 Lessons to Save Your Life, is quite simply a phenomenal read and in my view a must-read for all of us.As a Jew living in Eastern Europe under Nazi occupation, Edith was taken to Auschwitz concentration camp with her parents and sister, at the age of 16. She explains how she found her inner resources, how she came to view her guards as the real prisoners, turn hate into pity and, incredibly, she even describes her horrific experience as ‘an opportunity’. She has liberated herself from the prison of her past through forgiveness.I’m acutely aware that for many of us listening, myself included, it’s hard to put our own problems alongside anything Edith has faced. Which makes her teaching that, ‘There’s no hierarchy in trauma’ all the more beautiful. Edith is not here to make us put our own suffering into perspective and overcome it. Rather, she explains, we can learn to come to terms with pain, reframe it and become stronger.We cover so many different topics in this conversation, from parenting and relationship wisdom to insights on semantics and depression. Edith’s message to us is that we can change the thoughts and behaviours that are keeping us imprisoned in the past. I felt grateful and humbled to have had the opportunity to speak to Edith and the conversation really changed me. I hope you get as much out of it as I did.Show notes available at https://drchatterjee.com/144Follow me on instagram.com/drchatterjee/Follow me on facebook.com/DrChatterjee/Follow me on twitter.com/drchatterjeeukDISCLAIMER: The content in the podcast and on this webpage is not intended to constitute or be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.
