NATAL – the Israel Trauma Center for Victims of Terror and War

NATAL is an apolitical organization providing multidisciplinary treatment and support to direct and indirect victims of trauma due to terror and war in Israel. 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.

Project Phototherapy for Children at Risk Experiencing Double Trauma

Photography enables us to deepen our insight into a person’s internal life and encourage personal growth. It additionally stimulates unique methods of observation and creative thinking. In this project with the children, photography was used  to process their prior life experiences in a nonverbal way, to establish a place of safety, protection and inclusion, to reinforce personal strength and empowerment.

With the help of BCD Israel and the John & Marine van Vlissingen Foundation, NATAL completed the project Phototherapy for Children, with one group, leaving a deep impact on the participants and staff at the Beit Appel Boarding School. As the project is in high demand, they are hoping to carry out three groups this coming year.
