Su Su Maung is a practicing psychologist with an interest in trauma. She has some ideas about the tendency for hero-worship and then for a backlash and condemnation in Burmese culture. She finds the root of these in trauma. She will talk about about healthy and unhealthy reactions in a talk called: Splitting in Myanmar’s Psyche: Intergenerational and Collective Trauma.
The talk will be Sunday, 3 April 2016, at 2:00 at Pansodan Scene (second floor) 144 Pansodan, corner of Pansodan and Maha Bandoola. ၁၁၄ ပန်းဆိုးတန်း ဒုတိယထပ် (ငါးဘာသာကျောင်းနှင့် မျက်နှာချင်းဆိုင်) across from the gate of the Ganesh Temple. There is nothing on the ground floor, a bookshop on the first floor, and we are on the second floor.
Su Su Maung will be happy to answer questions and discuss further after the presentation. The talk will be in English; discussion can be in Burmese or English.

At Pansodan Scene you can get espresso drinks and natural sodas, daily 10-6 as well as the day of the talk.
