Helping the Teenagers of Tomorrow in Sderot...

Terror attacks are sadly affecting everyday life in Israel. For the residents of Sderot in southern Israel – a stone’s throw from the Gaza Strip, the ever present threat of rocket attacks is an added risk. For the young people living there it has framed their lives for over a decade. Now they are beginning to show a sudden upsurge in anti-social behaviour and violence. How has living here afflicted their young lives and what future do they have?

Ben-Gurion University Psychology Professor Golan Shahar has spent the past five years working with kids and their families in Sderot. He is visiting to share his experiences of Sderot’s young people, how they cope with growing up under duress, and how he aims to support their future in the face of adversity.
