Benafsheinu Treatment Center for Haredi Victims of Sexual Abuse
Bayit Cham established the Benafsheinu Treatment Center in 2013 in order to provide professional treatment for adult victims of sexual abuse, ages 18+ from the Orthodox sector. It is one of the six largest centers in Israel that treat PTSD resulting from sexual assault. It is unique in its provision of culturally sensitive treatment adapted to the needs of the religious sector. Since cPTSD (child sexual abuse) is often co-morbid with BPD, we present this treatment option to explore.
Benafsheinu treatment includes:
- Specialized psychotherapeutic treatment for trauma;
- Psychiatric medication when necessary;
- DBT and dissociation group therapy;
- Family and marital interventions;
- Art therapy;
- Clinical day activity
Treatment is provided at no cost, upon approval of the welfare department.
Benafsheinu operates in three branches: Bnei Brak, Elad and Modi’in Illit
