Haruv Institute - Annual Report 2016 - Summary

multiple problems and needs, to which the workers must provide solutions, and all this while under a heavy workload. Many workers remark that they feel they don’t have the proper tools and resources for direct intervention. The act of intervention by the social worker with the families, and especially with the children who in these families, requires understanding the effects of stress and distress on families and children, and implementing the appropriate tools to cope with the situations of risk and danger to the children. In the program’s framework, the social workers were exposed to fundamental issues in work with children at risk and their families. The aim of the training program was to help the social workers with their daily coping. Subjects of the training program: children in states of neglect; generational transmission of abuse; approaches to working with parents; skills for discourse and intervention with parents; approaches to working with children in states of stress and distress; the language in talking with children; approaches to working with adolescents: coping with resistance and aggression; skills in discourse and intervention with adolescents; a workshop with the participation of actors from MSR (the National Center for Medical Simulation); children with disabilities at risk of abuse, neglect; detecting and identifying disabled child victims of abuse, etc. 3.
