The Temmy & Albert Latner Israel Center for the Treatment of Psychotrauma
The Temmy and Albert Latner Israel Center for the Treatment of Psychotrauma was founded by experts in the field of traumatic stress, as a project of Herzog Hospital, to promote the development of services and treatment for trauma survivors throughout Israel. The center is renowned as one of the leading research and treatment centers in Israel, and serves as an international resource center about trauma and treatment for both professionals and the general public.
When everyday people experience sudden, unexpected, out of the ordinary events, they feel as if the equilibrium of their lives has been disrupted. Traumatic events can shatter one’s most basic beliefs about trust and safety and leave the trauma survivor in a state of physical alertness. Recent decades have seen tremendous advances in the scientific community’s understanding of the impact of traumatic events on the human psyche. Today we know that most people who undergo traumatic events go through the coping process without developing problems. A sizable minority do get stuck and need professional help. In this site you will find information about healthy coping patterns and about therapy methods that have been developed to help trauma survivors, using relatively brief and focused techniques.
The Israel Center for the Treatment of Psychotrauma is part of Herzog Hospital’s Temmy and Albert Latner Institute for the Study of Social Psychiatry and Psychotherapy. It was founded by experts in the field of traumatic stress to promote the development of services for trauma survivors and to advance the treatment of trauma survivors throughout Israel. Furthermore, the Center aims to function as a national and international resource center for both mental health professionals and for the average Israeli in need of information.
We aim to achieve this mission through (1) making valuable information available to trauma survivors and their families and friends, (2) providing brief, focused treatments for trauma survivors, and (3) training professionals throughout the country in the most up-to-date methods for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder and other related difficulties.
This site is designed to acquaint you with our Center, as well as provide important information about psychological trauma, typical responses, and treatment.
We offer tips for mental health professionals working with trauma survivors and also offer various training opportunities in the most up-to-date treatment methods.
Our many links can help you find your way to other websites containing a vast array of additional information, services, and journal articles
