About the author
ABOUT THE AUTHOR Clayre Breslin-Heaslip is a retired gero-psychotherapist who had the privilege of working with survivors and children of survivors of the Holocaust while employed at Jewish Family and Children's Services in Florida. It was here that she first became aware of the magnitude of the damaging effects of antisemitism that existed and still exists throughout the world including America. "I learned what a pogrom was/is and learned how many human beings were viciously exterminated in several countries just because they were Jewish. Women, raped and tortured, children ruthlessly slaughtered, men annihilated simply because of their religious beliefs. It made me wonder why antisemitism exists and what causes hatred toward any segment of humanity." Clayre attended Marymount College in New York city and Loma Linda University in California, earned a Master's degree in Clinical and Administrative Social Work from Fordham University, and a Ph.D. in Nutrition. She was an adjunct Professor at Arizona State University teaching Aging Social Policy. For many years she gave community seminars and, as a Medicare/Medicaid Certified LCSW, had a private practice geared toward helping mature adults find solutions to their transitional challenges.
