What Makes the Haruv Institute Unique?

The uniqueness of the Haruv Institute is expressed in its comprehensive, multi- disciplinary activities geared to effectively address the issue of child abuse and neglect, including in the medical, legal, emotional, psychological, educational and social arenas. It is this approach which provides the Institute with its unique capacity to create system-wide impact and long-term sustainable change for the benefit of children who have experienced abuse and neglect and for their families. More specifically: Haruv's training programs are targeted at the entire spectrum of professionals surrounding and interacting with children at risk, Program participants work with all of Israel's diverse communities: The ultra- Orthodox, Arab-Israeli, Ethiopian-Israeli communities and more, Haruv tailors each of its programs and projects to the needs of the participants rather than taking programs "off the shelf", Haruv's work in several areas—training, research, development and dissemination of knowledge-- creates powerful synergy among them, with each informing and enhancing the other, Haruv's close collaboration with municipalities and government ministries relevant to the issue of child abuse—the Ministries of Health, Education, Social Affairs, Justice, and Public Security –insures that Haruv's programs will be well integrated into the work of these systems.
