International Conference on Loss, Bereavement and Human Resilience in Israel and the World: Facts, Insights and Implications

Date: 12 Jan 2016 - 14 Jan 2016

Israel, Eilat

This conference is the product of a joint Bereavement Forum chaired by the University of Haifa's International Center for Loss, Bereavement and Human Resilience and bringing together leaders in Israeli society's response to loss and bereavement. The conference committees include leaders in this field from the academic and clinical arenas, key personnel in government and non-governmental agencies, and persons representing lay and professional leadership. In addition to the University of Haifa and our own center's involvement, the Ministry of Social Welfare, the Ministry of Defense's Bereaved Families and Memorialization division, the Israel Defense Forces, the Health Ministry, the National Insurance Institute of Israel (Bituach Leumi), Or Yehuda academic College, ELAH–Center for Psycho-social support for Dutch immigrants, the Yad Lebanim Organization representing bereaved parents and families from the uniformed services, the Organization for Widows and Orphans of the Israel Defense Forces, the Israel Trauma Coalition, Amcha (families affected by the Holocaust), the University of Haifa's Multi-disciplinary Clinical Center have also been active in supporting the conference. We can truly say that our conferences in Eilat are the fruits of a unique partnership devoted to furthering the appreciation of the challenges and opportunities faced by bereaved individuals, communities, and Israel's multiethnic multicultural society.



The conference is designed to offer two groups of people with interest in bereavement and human resilience a conference suited to them. On the one hand, professionals representing an array of fields will feel at home both sharing and learning from others. Mental health professionals and clinicians involved in service delivery, faculty and students from the academic and research aspects of the field, healthcare personnel and policy makers, persons involved in service delivery and policy development from social services, the military and police, will find much of interest. On the other hand, additional persons with an interest in the field, including persons who have experienced bereavement and want to learn and contribute, will find much to interest them here as well. Some of the events planned will be aimed at one or the other of the groups, while much of what is presented will be suitable for persons seeking to learn and to influence the developments relevant to their own native countries and societies.



All losses are painful, and yet, we cope, manage and grow. It is our ability to maintain respect for the bereaved alongside the memory and love of those who no longer walk the earth with us, that allows us to go on with the work of living. Come join us as we share with each other important aspects of our work and experience.
