Howard (Haim) Rubinstein PsyD

Clinical Psychologist

ABOUT

I have worked for over 25 years providing treatment to children, teens and their families. I also treat adults in general psychology. I emphasize goal-directed short term therapy that makes sense to the client.

Much of my work has been in the identification and treatment of those struggling with ADHD and other Learning Disabilities. My emphasis is often on grappling with the emotional impact of the disorder and on daily functioning. This includes teaching self-management and social skills that allow children and youth to take more responsibility and to overcome some of the obstacles presented by their condition. Finding the right fit between independence and parental support and involvement is always important. I have a private practice in Raanana.

In addition to individual and family therapy, I run social skills groups for children and teens. The group therapy involves teaching concrete social skills and then practicing them in games and role plays with video feedback. The participants work cooperatively as a video crew to document each other practicing the new skills and then receive video feedback on their attempts to use the new behaviors.

I lead workshops for teachers, parents and mental health professionals on promoting social development in youth. I previously worked for four years with the Special Education Services of the Tel Aviv School District and prior to that was the Program Coordinator for Child and Adolescent Services at Quest HealthCare, P.A. in Houston, Texas.
