Dr. Mooli Lahad

Dr. Mooli Lahad, a world-renowned Psychotrauma specialist and full professor at Tel Hai College in Israel, will present a hands-on workshop on Community Resilience in Response to Trauma experienced by communities under stress and facing life-threatening situations with prolonged uncertainties. Dr. Lahad’s training will be based on his Basic PH Model of Coping and Resilience, a unique intervention that encourages the development of coping skills to assist in managing complex stressors throughout the life cycle, and some methods of understanding, planning, and intervening in communities following crisis. These models have been used by communities globally to manage the impact of post-traumatic grief and other major psychological effects of disasters.

Dr. Lahad is senior medical and education psychologist, professor of dramatherapy and psychology at Tel Hai College in the Upper Galilee in Israel, and founder and president of the Community Stress Prevention Center (CSPC), an NGO which he founded 40 years ago. He is an advisor to ministries and governments world-wide on coping and resilience in the face of adversities.

Dr. Lahad developed the BASIC PH model and the 6 Parts story making (6PSM) and many other models and methods to use dramatherapy, bibliotherapy in the treatment of children and adults, and developed the SEE FAR CBT method for the treatment of PTSD. Dr. Lahad is the author and co-author of 35 books and many articles on the topics of communities under stress, resilience, the use of arts in coping with life-threatening situations, loss & bereavement.


Rabbis, chaplains, and social workers are often called on to provide spiritual care near life’s end. Whether in response to serious illness, advanced cognitive or physical decline in old age, or unexpected, tragic violence, health care professionals and clergy need to respond compassionately and effectively with families facing spiritual, emotional, and existential crises. Clips from Wurzweiler School of Social Work’s “Spirituality Near the End of Life” Conference in July 2019 include leading clergy, chaplains, and social workers offering their knowledge, skills, and wisdom to assist professionals seeking to better integrate spiritual care into their professional and community work.
