Dear International members and affiliates of the IPA,
We thank you for your interest in Israel and the IPA activity.
We work constantly to maintain the best possible psychological service to the victims of the 7th of October, providing assistance, psychotherapy, counseling, and training to those in need.
These events have not only affected hundreds of thousands of people in Israel but have also traumatized the modern world. No one has thought such atrocities could happen today on our land, on our planet Earth.
We are aware that during these historic days, psychologists around the world are worried about their personal safety and their freedom as Jewish healthcare providers. Like other professions, psychologists in the world have become a target of antisemitic intentions and actions.
The IPA, like the Israeli Medical Association and other affiliate organizations, including the International Affairs Office at the Ministry of Health, is committed to helping in any of these vicious acts, and we are here to support you and your needs in any possible way we can.
Please send us an email with your specific needs and inquiry and we would love to hear and help when possible.
If you want to join the psychology and mental health delegations to Israel, write us back with a title: "Asking for info on the delegation program" and we'll continue the process from there.
With warm regards,
Yoram Schleyer, Chairperson
Israel Psychological Association
