Bully Prevention and Social Emotional Health
Dr. Aviva Goldstein received her doctorate from the Azrieli Grdauate School of Jewish Education and Administration at Yeshiva University. As an educator and family counselor based in Jerusalem, she occupies the space where the worlds of positive psychology, parenting and Judaism come together. Having worked with diverse populations – from day school administrators to gap year students, from non-profit organizations to teachers in Israel’s periphery – her projects range from curriculum and app development to individual and large-scale interventions. The common thread throughout her work is the desire to bring the research findings in positive psychology to a wide audience, while demonstrating the relevance of Judaism to contemporary life.
