Jenny and Peter Wohl welcomed over 40 friends, members and supporters of TAU to their Sydney home to learn about the computerized intervention training program invented by Prof. Bar Haim. The program helps soldiers address pre-combat threats, reducing the risk of PTSD outbreaks post-combat by two-thirds. The program is currently being prepared for full-scale implementation by the Israeli Defense Forces, with the American army showing interest in its adoption.


Prof. Bar Haim was also guest of honor at the Annual General Meeting of the Friends Association in Melbourne, held at the home of TAU Governor Rosie and Dov Potaznik. Prof. Bar Haim presented his research to the 45 attending members.
