Academic Profile: 

Ph.D. 1999, Hebrew University of Jerusalem; Lecturer 2000, Senior Lecturer 2005, Associate Professor 2011..

Research Interests:

Indicators of children's well-being. The politics of social policy. Parliaments and social policy. Children's rights and the Sociology of childhood.

Abstracts of Current Research :

Most of my research focuses on (a) the nature of children’s well-being and the factors affecting it, (b) the methodology of social indicators, and (c) the use of indicators of children’s well-being in the process of making and implementing child and public policy. The theoretical approach guiding my work is based on three concepts: the power of information, childhood as a (sociological) stage in itself, and children’s rights.

As a part of a team of researchers at ClemsonUniversity, DukeUniversity, and the Universityof Chicago, I am examining the effects of Strong Communities, a multi-million-dollar initiative to prevent child maltreatment in Greenville County, South Carolina, by building and strengthening norms of mutual assistance and of collective responsibility for family support.  Building on the efforts of all sectors of society including young people themselves, Strong Communities is a complex initiative posing difficult challenges for ongoing assessment of children’s safety and well-being and for identification of the potent inputs in this process and in its replication elsewhere. This project will enhance and inform my work on the active role children can and should play both in the study of their own well-being and in the impact of those studies on policies.

 As the Israeli representative in the EU’s COST A/19 working group on child welfare, I am both learning from and contributing to the intergenerational perspective framing the COST’s work, particularly in relation to children’s role in advancing their own status. 

I also continue my research in the field of children’s well being indicators. In my research I continue to explore the theoretical conceptualization of children’s well being, to seek and develop new and appropriate indicators for children well being and to study the indicators role in the policy making process.

 Through the Global Monitoring Report (GMR) of UNESCO, The UNICEF report cards series and the Kids Count project of the Annie E. Casey Foundation, I am studying the evolution of the nature and use of indicators of child well-being.  In this context, I have the rare opportunity to examine how my own scholarship has influenced the field.

Key words: Well-being, children’s rights, child policy, social indicators, childhood as a stage of itself.

Academic Profile: 

Ph.D. 2006, Hebrew University of Jerusalem; Lecturer 2008, Senior Lecturer 2012, Associate Professor 2016; Full Professor 2020

Research Interests:

Prof. Attar-Schwartz's research focuses on the well-being, adjustment, and resilience of children and youth in domestic and out-of-home care settings, including residential care settings and family foster care. She has published extensively on children’s safety, quality of life, and psychosocial and educational adjustment in residential care.  She is also interested in issues of social support of children in residential care by their nuclear and extended family, by their peers and by the residential care staff. Shalhevet is also an expert in intergenerational relationship in the family and its contribution to child and adolescent well-being. 

Shalhevet is especially interested in using multidimensional perspectives, taking into account multiple ecological spheres in children’s lives, such as their personal attributes, family characteristics, and social and organizational factors outside the parental home, to identify the stressors and protective factors involved in young people’s well-being. Her current projects focus on: kinship family foster care for children at risk, child-parent contact in residential care, stigmatization of children and youth in residential care, and intergenerational relationships in the family and child well-being.

Shalhevet is involved in several governmental and non-governmental committees and initiatives aiming to promote the well-being of children, in general, and children in care, In particular, in Israel. She is also currently the Chair of the Steering Committee for Knowledge Development, The Council for the Child in Care (Yeldaim Besikui).

 

Key words: Child well-being, residential care, family foster care, social support, intergenerational relationships.

 Abstracts of Current Research:

The development of empathy during infancy: This is a longitudinal study (BSF funded, in collaboration with Carolyn Zahn-Waxler & Ronit Roth-Hanania) which followed infants from age 3-months to 18-month and systematically examined their responses to others’ distress. Additional variables were also assessed, including infants’ responses to others’ positive emotions, their prosocial behaviors, infant temperament, and parent-child interactions. A follow-up at age 36-months is also being conducted.

Experimental examination of empathy in infancy: This project (ISF funded) utilizes new experimental methodologies to study young infants’ empathic understanding and concern for distressed others. It includes a set of experiments with 3- and 6-months-old infants, using eye-tracking tasks as well as behavioral tasks.

Control and prosocial development in religious and secular families: This study examined secular and religious parents' use of authoritarian and psychological control methods when disciplining their school-aged children, and children's prosocial and antisocial behavior. Children's construal of these parental behaviors was also assessed.

Validating a new questionnaire assessing five domains of parental socialization (in collaboration with Joan Grusec): The questionnaire was constructed based on the domains of socialization theoretical framework proposed by Grusec & Davidov (2010). It is being used in projects examining specific links between different aspects (domains) of parenting and different aspects of children’s and adolescents’ competence.

Research Interests:

Wife abuse and battering; exposure of children, youth, and young adults to violence in their families of origin; exposure of children and youth to community violence; exposure of children and their parents to political violence;  mental health consequences of child maltreatment; school violence; the socio-cultural and socio-political context of violence against women.

 

Research Projects:

 Research Projects:

 

1.      Mental HealthImplications of Exposure to violence: I am currently involved in several research projects on the mental health implications of the exposure of people to different patterns of violence, such as: The cumulative exposure of young adults to family violence during the life-span (i.e., during childhood, adolescence, and young adulthood); the exposure of youth to community violence; and the exposure of children and youth and their parents to political violence. I have also examined in some of these studies resilience and protective factors, as buffering and mitigating factors, of the mental health implications of these exposures.

2..Wife Abuse and Battering in Arab Societies: I have been conducting research on different dimensions of the problem of wife abuse and battering in the Arab society (mainly in Israel and the Palestinian National Authority), with special interest in the rates, characteristics, correlates and risk factors, and mental health consequences of the problem as well as battered women’s coping strategies and use of different patterns of help-seeking.   Furthermore, I conducted research on the socio-cultural and socio-political context of violence against women.

3.  Beliefs about Wife Abuse and Battering: I have conducted several studies about beliefs about wife beating, and in recent years am in the process of carrying-out several other research projects on this topic (e.g., justifying wife abuse, willingness to help abused women, etc.) among health and mental health practitioners, among students of the health and mental health professions, as well as among the general public, in several countries. These studies focus on examining to what extent an integrative theory (composed of patriarchal theory, social learning theory, intra-psychic processes, and more) explain people’s beliefs about wife abuse and battering, and their attitudes toward abused women and abusive husbands.

4.      School Violence: I am interested in examining children and youth violence in school, using the social learning theory and the stressful life events perspective. I just completed conducting a study about the exposure of pupils of elementary and secondary schools (as victims as well as perpetrators) and the relationship of this exposure to their exposure to family violence, community violence, and political violence. I also examined in this study the mental health implications of the exposure to these different patterns of violence.

 

Abstracts of Current Research :

Selected list of Current Research Abstracts:

Wife abuse and battering in the Arab society: Over the past two decades, family violence in general, and wife battering in particular, have become a major concern throughout the world. However, different factors (e.g., socio-cultural, economic, religious, and political circumstances) have precluded comprehensive investigation of this problem in the Arab societies. An Instrument Package was constructed in order to measure the following: (1) the prevalence of various incidents and manifestations of abuse and battering of Arab women in Israel; (2) psychological effects of wife abuse and battering (i.e., stress, low self esteem, depression, anxiety); and (3) strategies used by Arab battered women to cope with violence. About 2102 Arab women participated in the study. It is anticipated that the results of the study will have implications for development of theories for studying wife beating in different Arab communities, for prevention of and intervention in cases of wife abuse and battering, and for setting policies related to wife abuse and battering in the Arab societies.

Implications of witnessing and experiencing family violence among adolescents  and young adults:Despite noteworthy developments in research on the implications of witnessing and experiencing family violence in Western societies, there is a serious dearth of studies on this topic in Arab societies. Two recent studies conducted by this researcher examined the extent to which witnessing and experiencing different patterns of family violence in childhood, adolescencce and young adulthood predict manifestations of sibling violence, hopelessness, and low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, PTSD, hostility and other mental health consequences, among Arab adolescents and young adults. It is hoped that the findings will provide a basis for developing theories for studying the topic in different Arab communities, strategies for prevention and intervention in family violence, and policies for working with abusive families.

 

Consequences of exposure to community violence: A comparative study among Israeli, Palestinian and American youth (in full collaboration with Dr. Neil Gutermat, at ColumbiaUniversitySchoolof Social Work):Extensive research has been conducted during the last three decades on youth exposure to community violence. However, there is a serious lack of research on the socio-cultural context of this problem. A cross cultural and cross-national study is being carried out among Palestinian, Israeli and American youth, using a self-administered instrument, assessing the extent of their exposure to different types of community violence, the psychological consequences of this exposure, receiving support from family and teachers (as factors that might buffer or intensify the consequences), and youth help-seeking behavior as a result of their exposure to community violence.

Research Interests:

(1) children’s risk, maltreatment, well-being and protection in diverse contexts; (2) practice research (psycho social interventions in diverse reality, clinical training and supervision); (3) family therapy, narrative therapy; (4) the LGBTQ+ community (emerging adulthood and parenthood).

 

Current Research Projects:

Attachment and Relationship Networks in Large Families: A Context-Informed Study (with Dorit Roer-Strier and Heidi Keller)

The study aims to develop a context-informed grounded theoretical model to explain attachment and relationship networks in large families living in non-Western contexts. The target population are large families in two communities in Israel: the Ultra-Orthodox and the Bedouin from the unrecognized villages. The study utilizes a modified grounded theory methodology, the purpose of which is the systematic development of a theoretical model grounded in data. [ISF Grant number 2119/20]

 

Sexual Abuse in the LGBTQ+ Community (with Dafna Tener)

The study aims to give voice, describe, analyze and conceptualize the experiences, meanings and perceptions of gay, lesbian and bisexual adults and young-adults who experienced sexual abuse within the LGBTQ+ community. The study combines two qualitative methodologies: semi-structured in-depth interviews with adults and young-adults, and net-nography of social media public posts dealing with this topic. This, in order to understand the phenomenon of sexual abuse in the LGBTQ+ community from the perspective of those who experienced it.

 

Cultural Competence and Language Accessibility

This research group is interested in promoting studies related to language accessibility of different populations, for example, the practice of interpretation and intercultural mediation, the experience of the professional relationship in a translated conversation and organizational preparation for community interpretation. We aim to develop knowledge to inform policy and practice in order to improve services operating with diverse populations.

Abstracts of Current Research:

Experiences at the mother unit:

The Mothers’ Unit is a rehabilitation and treatment program for mothers at risk and their young children, which includes joint residence of mothers and children in the Unit. The program was created to provide an alternative to removing the children from home because of abuse or neglect. The qualitative study aims to construct a grounded theoretical model for conceptualizing and reflecting the points of view of both mothers involved in the program and professionals working with them in the Unit. The study will include semi-structured qualitative interviews (n=32). Participants are interviewed in four content areas: (1) the narrative of arriving at the mothers’ unit; (2) the meaning and construction of their stay in the unit; (3) perceived short- and long-term consequences of their stay in the unit, including advantages and disadvantages; (4) the effect of the program on the women’s perceptions of parenting and their relationships with their children. The data is analyzed with the aim of creating a grounded theoretical model describing and explaining the essence of experiences at the Mothers Unit. The study aims to enrich the limited body of research on working with mothers at risk and their children out of their homes, and to enhance professionals’ understanding of their experiences to encourage suitable treatmentt.

Child sexual abuse therapy centers in Israel:

Treatment centers for children victims of sexual abuse in Israel began operating in 2007 as a joint project of the  Rashi Foundation, the National Insurance Institute of Israel and the Ministry of Social Affairs and social services, aimed to provide free of charge services to victims and their parents. The current study is based on computerized reporting by therapists working in the center with the aim of analyzing  the characteristic of the sexual abuse experienced by the children , symptoms presented, therapy goals and treatment outcomes as perceived by therapists.

Abstracts of Current Research :

 Longitudinal study of transition to adulthood of care leavers: In recent years there is a growing concern for youth aging out of public care. While Israeli such young adults share much in common with their counterparts in other Western countries, there are certain issues that are more unique characteristics of the Israeli situation (e.g., the compulsory military service). In this longitudinal study we follow young people since their last year in the residential care setting. We currently assess their status for the third time, when they are about 22 years old and have completed the military service. The findings of this study support the development of national services to these young people in order to secure their normative transition into adulthood.

The impact of National Civil Service from the perspective of youth at risk: The studyfocuses on the outcomes of National Civil Service (NCS) from the perspective of NCS volunteers. The aim is to deepen the understanding about the impact of the service on young people by describing their status as young adults on multiple life domains that are expected to be influenced and changed through national service. Furthermore, we compare the status of young people at different points in their lives by interviewing different age groups NCS alumni. Broadly speaking the study will identify: a) in which life domains outcomes are more positive; b) which sub groups are more vulnerable and require additional supports; c) how outcomes change over time; and d) what internal and external processes explain the impact of the NCS on these young persons.

 

Transition to higher education of vulnerable youth: This project focuses on residential care leavers in higher education institutions (HEI). The project addresses the problems that contribute to their low participation in higher education and the difficulties they experience when they attend these institutions. First, residential care institutions and higher education institutions lack awareness and make little or no special effort to promote greater participation in higher education to residential care leavers. Second, young people leaving residential care do not receive enough social support to attend and complete their studies in HEI and as a result drop out. HEI, on the other hand, do not provide them any special support to improve their chances to do well in schools. Finally, there is a lack of knowledge about young care leavers and their efforts and opportunities regarding education, especially higher education. This unique project involves interventions aimed at creating a support group of care leavers who are already students in HEI in order to empower them to investigate, advocate, and promote the participation of other care leavers in higher education in both the residential care and the HEI system. The aim is to work on both sides of the divide in order to increase mutual awareness and to improve the design of new processes both in HEIs and in residential care in order to help care leavers aspiring to higher education prepare, apply to, and take full advantage of the HEI educational process. We use a participatory mixed method study to identify factors that promote or hinder the successful transition and integration of care leavers in higher education.
