We are honored to have been published in the German Magazine "Chrimson Plus" in their July, 2016 edition. The article features the important work of NATAL in strengthening the resiliency of Israel's population throughout all of Israel's wars and terror attacks, and NATAL's work in treating those suffering from war-related trauma using multidisciplinary treatment methods. The article includes an interview with the head of NATAL's Community Outreach Unit, Yotam Dagan, in which he explains his work in his unit and their ongoing resiliency programs to prepare and strengthen the Israeli population for terror and war- related events. NATAL serves over 20,000 people each year in trauma treatment and resiliency programs, with over 150 therapists all across the country, and has touched the lives of over 200,000 people since its establishment in 1998.
Established in 1998, NATAL – the Israel Trauma Center for Victims of Terror and War, is an apolitical organization providing multidisciplinary psychological and emotional support to both direct and indirect victims of trauma due to terror and war in Israel. Founded by Judith Yovel Recanati, together with the late Dr. Yossi Hadar z"l, NATAL 's mission is to lead the way in the field of trauma, and to advance the resiliency of Israeli society through treatment, prevention, public awareness and research.
NATAL consists of professional teams of mental health providers that assist with bereavement, short term & long term trauma care, and coping techniques during and after disasters. We work with first responders and caregivers strengthening their coping skills both professionally and personally.
On the international arena, we share our vast knowledge to train international care givers and organizations to cope with emergency situations.
