Prof. Asher Ben-Arieh

I’m pleased and proud to present our annual report for Haruv Institute activities in 2020. What a year!

It began with great momentum in Israel and abroad, which seemed for a moment would come to a halt due to the pandemic, but despite Coronavirus and its restrictions, we are closing the year with a tremendous sense of pride. The institute has prospered, strengthening its position as a leading body in Israel and worldwide for promoting knowledge and training professionals in the field of child maltreatment. This report tells an amazing story. Of our success in the Corona year, of continuously leading new initiatives, overcoming physical and virtual limitations, increasing our target audiences – all without compromise. The numbers and data before you tell the story simply. In 2020 the institute increased its level of activity from previous years. By the year’s end, we found we had held more programs and trainings, and reached a wider public than planned; not only within our projected budget, but at only 85% of it. Our swift adaptation to Zoom training, developing curricula and new trainings, and using virtual platforms to overcome distance and physical borders – these were the source of our success this year. I would like to highlight the development of “Haruv on the Air” programs. We began as early as March 2020 with the “Haruv from the Couch” initiative, a series of Zoom lectures for professionals. The initiative expanded quickly in both Israel and Haruv-USA in Tulsa, and many thousands of professionals enjoyed it and gained important knowledge. Within several weeks we had developed the complementary initiatives of “Haruv Together”, more extended workshops for a limited number of participants, and “Continuous Haruv”, virtual courses for professionals. Here too we reached thousands of participants in activities in Hebrew, Arabic and English. “Haruv on the Air” crossed borders and provided opportunity for participants from Arab countries and the Palestinian Authority, as well as many other countries (Australia, Europe, the Middle East and North America). These activities developed professionally to become so successful, that they grew to be a central and continuous part of the institute activity, and shall remain with us in the future. Adjustment to partial virtual activity enabled us to strengthen our synergy with Haruv-USA, and offer varied lectures and advanced trainings in English. But we did so much more than virtual activities this past year. We continued to hold frontal activities and hybrid trainings, both physically and virtually (subject to Corona guidelines and excluding

| ANNUAL REPORT 2020 5

lockdowns). Noteworthy is the growth in our work with educational frameworks, and continued training and collaboration with leading NGOs and organizations in the field of welfare in Israel. Joint activities with local welfare services bureaus were reinforced, and of special mention is our first success in expanding activities with para-medical professionals – occupational therapists, speech therapists, and more. Our challenges are many each year, and unfortunately our mission of aiding child victims of abuse and neglect is far from complete. This past year, more than ever before, we faced complex challenges and emerged victorious. We could not have been successful without the full mobilization of all Haruv staff members. I am tremendously grateful to the Schusterman Foundation Israel, especially to Lynn and Stacey Schusterman, who enable us to dream and realize. I am more proud than ever to lead a committed, professional team, adept at working well and sociably, who have proven that even during such a crazy year it is possible and necessary to continue working for the benefit of maltreated children. I pray we succeed over the next few years, in reducing the child abuse pandemic, and in helping those affected to better cope.

This program was founded by educator Josh McNeil and educational counselor Kathy Van Horn of Lakeside school in Pennsylvania, USA; in collaboration with Dr. Bruce Perry, a psychiatrist and neuroscientist, specializing in trauma effects on children's brains. Lakeside schools are designed for children and youth who did not function at regular schools, and require intensive help to study. This intervention method is suitable for all types of schools. It proposes that children and youth who have experienced trauma will benefit greatly from the program components, while those without trauma background will enjoy or disregard them.
