The International Program in Crisis and Trauma – M.A. in Social Work at Tel Aviv University


Help, I Need Somebody


Social workers have huge responsibility in helping victims of personal or national disasters. With this in mind, it is important to note that the services and aid these practitioners provide have to be adjusted to the cultural background of their victims and their individual circumstances. The International Program in Crisis and Trauma of Tel Aviv University aims to do just that – provide social workers with sufficient skills to communicate with and understand people better, and to offer the best help there is.


Study Program


TAU's International Program in Crisis and trauma includes both theoretical and practical classes. Much emphasis is given to the way that social workers' services vary in different cultural contexts. As part of the M.A. studies the participants visit different centers in Israel in order to see ways that personal and communal traumas are dealt with in various surroundings and contexts, such as Jewish ultra-orthodox, Arabic or secular Jewish communities. Students will discover new ways of helping terror victims, immigrants, Holocaust survivors and domestic violence victims as well as other groups.


Studies Structure


The entire program is in English. Its duration is 10 month (three consecutive semesters). In case students choose to write a thesis they have to continue their studies for an additional semester at least.
