I am an Arabic and Hebrew speaking Jew, born in Syria, raised in Lebanon and Brazil where I attended French schools. I am currently living in the US. I am the founder of nonprofit institutes in Israel and the US studying new and cutting-edge concepts about individual and collective psychological trauma. Our research includes identifying the power of language and what words and threats trigger “irrational responses” in people. The language used by all Israeli leaders, regardless of party affiliation, must be gentle but firm, courteous and inviting and without any sign of arrogance, threat or show of force. It must be devoid of any notion of contempt or punishment (even if it is a just response.) Force can be used when necessary, but the words must never chide nor humiliate.
Why I want peace:
The mission of the my institute, International Trauma-Healing Institute (ITI), is to promote peace at the community, national, and international levels by bringing awareness to trauma as a root cause of suffering, conflict and violence and to the resources available for trauma's resolution and healing.
Interests and activities:
I am a Somatic Experiencing trainer and instructor, teaching in America and Israel
Something you didn't know about me:
I am the author of seven books for various social sectors on collective trauma
I want to promote peace at the community, national, and international levels by bringing awareness to trauma as a root cause of suffering, conflict and violence and to the resources available for trauma's resolution and healing.
