TRAINING PROGRAMS: TREATING CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES In 2019 The Haruv Institute expanded activities in this field to include caregivers, social workers and bussing escorts. The program objective was to raise awareness and provide skills to prevent maltreatment of disabled children, and to identify those who are victims of abuse and neglect. Some training programs were long-term and others short-term, with 264 participants from a wide range of professions. The training programs were held in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Beer Sheba, Herzliya and Hod Hasharon (see activities in the Conferences and Study Days section).
