Description:

Delivered by Dr. Rachel Dekel, PhD.

Dr. Dekel is a Full Professor at the Louis and Gabi Weisfeld School of Social Work at Bar-Ilan University, Israel. She is a member in the Israeli Excellence Center (I-CORE) of mass trauma.

In the last two decades she has been involved in various research projects which examine different facets of human coping with traumatic events such as war, terror, road accidents and family violence. Professor Dekel's research focuses on individuals who have been directly exposed to these events as well as on their close ones, like spouses of veterans, children of fathers with PTSD, and therapists who work in areas under terrorism. During the past year she initiated a unique clinic for conjoint intervention for couples in which one of them suffers from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Professor Dekel has published about 100 articles and book chapters and has supervised more than 50 students.
