Psychological insights – the IDF parent, and others

The recent Gaza war has had many dimensions, some of which are still emerging.  One aspect would be the stress for Israelis of living under risk of fire, or having children in battle.  Israel has unfortunately had a lot of experience in having to cope in an ongoing manner.

Dr Batya Ludman, a psychologist in Ra’anana, has a regular “ask the doctor” column in the Jerusalem Post  which includes columns related to being an IDF mother here and stress in general

Also, she comments on how one can respond to terror here, For that, she emphasises the need for the country to come together as a community and realise why everyone is there in Israel.

Dr Ludman’s column also addresses every day challenges that we all find from the perspective of an Israeli, and is worth a general read here.
