Prof. Asher Ben-Arieh

We are pleased to present you with our annual report of The Haruv Institute activities for the year 2019. The Haruv Institute is the leading body in Israel and among leading institutions in the world for training in the field of maltreated children. The institute is dedicated to training professionals, para- professionals and researchers, and guiding parents and children in addressing every aspect of detection, treatment, rehabilitation and prevention of child maltreatment. We are also committed to renewal and accumulation of cutting-edge professional knowledge, and its dissemination in Israel and worldwide. In 2019 approximately 12,000 professionals were trained in Israel and abroad, and actively involved in the annual and periodic programs sponsored by The Haruv Institute: one-day activities of seminars, conventions and workshops; and training and study programs held over two days and longer. Tens of thousands were exposed to content presented at these venues via written and electronic-based information, disseminated by the institute at conventions and training sessions, and via media, internet and social media networks. This report reviews the past year, offering detailed information on the wide spectrum of activities The Haruv Institute has initiated, developed, led and taken part in. The estimated budget appears beside each activity. We have every hope you find this report interesting and would be grateful for your feedback and thoughts, which may enhance and promote our activities for the benefit and welfare of children at risk.

Sincerely,

Prof. Asher Ben-Arieh Executive Director, The Haruv Institute

ABOUT THE HARUV INSTITUTE

The Haruv Institute was established by the Schusterman Foundation twelve years ago, and is the leading body in Israel, and at the forefront internationally, for training and research in the field of maltreated children. The institute strives to create a professional and public community, characterized by a broad education and necessary skills and training to advance the well-being and welfare of maltreated children. To this end the institute trains professionals, para-professionals and researchers, as well as parents and adolescents, to detect and identify maltreated children and provide them with treatment and rehabilitation, and work towards reduction and ultimate prevention of this phenomenon. The uniqueness of the institute lies in its multi-disciplinary and comprehensive approach, which promotes our goal from every aspect – medical, legal, psychological, educational and social. The Haruv Institute’s impact in the field of treating child victims of abuse and neglect is extensive. Alongside training and study programs, the institute also invests in developing methodologies and protocols for treatment of these children. Since its inception it has trained tens of thousands of professionals who now work in the many agencies for the welfare of children in Israel. To implement its goals, the Institute works along the following channels: ■ Renewing and constructing cutting-edge professional knowledge in the field of treating maltreated children, and its dissemination in Israel and throughout the world. ■ Creating a variety of training programs suited to different target groups that work with children. ■ Expanding knowledge with a multicultural approach – Professional exchange of information and knowhow between Israel and other countries, by producing and disseminating professional knowledge on maltreated children, and training young researchers. ■ International activities – Within the framework of activities in the field of international research, The Haruv Institute has joined the Kemp Center in Denver, Colorado and Springer Academic Publishing House to produce a new international academic journal. ■ Initiatives, innovation, new project development and joint collaborations in the field of child maltreatment, via work done at Haruv Children's Campus, and The Child Abuse Prevention Initiative.

FORMING COMMUNITY PROTECTION COMMITTEES AND TRAINING THEIR STAFF

STUDY AND TRAINING PROGRAMS | WELFARE Annual

The protection committees project has been in operation for six years in local and regional councils and in many communities throughout Israel. A protection committee is a communal committee of volunteers within the community of varied professional backgrounds - spiritual, legal, therapeutic, educational, medical, etc. Committee members are usually appointed by the community steering-committee and appointments are approved by the community leadership. The goal of a protection committee is to promote awareness of prevention and community protection, and education towards healthy sexuality via workshops, lectures, etc. They also serve as an informal reference point for consultation and reporting suspected maltreatment when mandatory reporting is inapplicable; they provide a support network for victims in cases of mandatory reporting who are in the care of welfare agencies and the legal system. Committees are accompanied by a community social worker from the social services department. To date, scores of training programs have been held at local and regional councils with population of tens of thousands of children, in collaboration with the communities' social services department. In 2019 protection committees operated in four regional councils - Jordan Valley, Yoav, Sdot Negev, Mateh Yehuda and Hispin. Target Population for 2019 included volunteers from the community and members of existing protection committees in local councils, most of whom are professionals, such as social workers, psychologists, lawyers, rabbis, etc.

Number of Sessions: Total of 53 in 6 separate training programs
