FROM THE DIRECTOR’S DESK

Prof. Asher Ben-Aryeh

I’m pleased and proud to present the annual report for 2021, the second year of Haruv Institue activities held in the shadow of the Covid-19 pandemic. Our momentum in Israel and abroad, undeterred by the pandemic, continued and expanded in 2021. The Institute excelled, strengthening its position as the forefront in Israel and among world leaders in theory advancement, and training professionals in the field of child abuse. The report before you is an account of ongoing success, overcoming geographic and cultural challenges, leading new initiatives, professional advance and reaching greater target populations. All of this was accomplished without compromise. The numbers and data before you tell the story simply. In 2021 the Institute continued to expand its activities as compared to previous years. In the last year we have also held a greater number of programs and trainings and reached a larger audience than planned, while staying within our budget and expanding funding and various collaborations in keeping with the Institute’s strategic plan. Our swift adaptation to zoom training sessions which began in 2020, grew significantly in 2021 with the development of new learning and training programs, and use of virtual platforms to overcome physical limits and distances. We simultaneously expedited a safe return to in-person training, and the flexibility of combining in person, virtual and hybrid training was the basis for an extremely successful year. I would like to highlight the enhancement and development of Haruv on the Air programs, now a permanent part of Institute activities. This initiative continues to expand quickly in both Israel and Haruv-USA in Tulsa, with tens of thousands of professionals having already benefitted and acquired vital and innovative information. The various Haruv on the Air activities were held in Hebrew, Arabic and English, presenting the opportunity to participants from the Arab world and the Palestinian Authority, as well as many other countries (Australia, Europe, the Middle East and North America). Enjoying such great success, these programs soon became a central and ongoing part of Institute activities.

The transition to partially virtual activity allowed us to strengthen our synergy with Haruv-USA and offer a wide range of lectures and seminars in English. However, not only virtual activities were held this past year. All yearlong in keeping with Covid-19 guidelines, we continued to hold (excluding lock-downs) in-person activities and hybrid training sessions, combining virtual and in-person methods. Of special mention is the expansion of our work with educational institutions, and ongoing training and collaboration with leading Israeli NGOs and organizations in the field. Joint activities with social service departments in regional councils were reinforced as well. The fact that we were able, for the first time, to expand our activities with para-medical professionals, occupational therapists, speech therapists and many more, brings us great pride. As ever, challenges are many and unfortunately the mission of assisting child victims of abuse and neglect is far from complete. This year more than ever, we faced complex challenges and triumphed, and we never would have accomplished this without the dedication of the entire Haruv Institute staff. I am grateful to the Schusterman Israel Foundation, to Lynn and Stacey Schusterman in particular, who enable our dreams and their fulfillment. I am prouder than ever before to lead a team of capable and deeply committed professionals who work together tirelessly, proving that even in the midst of a world pandemic, we must and we can continue to act on behalf of abused and neglected children. We pray for success in mitigating the magnitude of the child abuse pandemic, and in helping child victims to better cope.

MULTIDISCIPLINARY TRAININGS IN THE FIELD OF EDUCATION

Neurologic Initiative at Arazim School and Omer Comprehensive Schools Assisting children who experienced trauma to regulate in their classes October - December 2021 This program was founded by educator Joshua MacNeill and educational counselor Kathy Van Horn, of Lakeside schools in Philadelphia, USA; in collaboration with Dr. Bruce Perry, psychiatrist and neuro-science, who specializes in the effect of trauma on children’s brains. Lakeside schools are designed for children and youth who did not function properly at regular schools, and require concentrated learning assistance. This intervention method is applicable in all schools and presumes to significantly help children and youth who have experienced trauma, while students without trauma background will either enjoy it or disregard it. Haruv Institute acquired the rights to the program and distribution in Israel, translated all materials into Hebrew and offers support, guidance and instruction in applying and implementing the program in schools.
