Get Help Israel’s aim is to verify the accuracy and updated information of the name, contact details and credentials of the therapist; and that the therapist is not subject to any licensing restrictions. Get Help Israel seeks to verify the factual accuracy of the information about the therapist at the time that he/she is listed in the directory, and every year annually at the time of renewal of the registration. Get Help Israel is not responsible for any change of credentials of the therapist in the interim period following such registration and/or renewal of registration of the therapists in its directory.
While Get Help Israel seeks to verify the factual accuracy regarding information pertaining to the therapists listed in its directory, Get Help Israel does not confirm the truth or accuracy as to what the therapists have represented to Get Help Israel or what they have requested to be listed and made public on the Site. Persons considering contacting any of the therapists listed in the directory are urged to conduct their own independent investigation and evaluation before retaining his/her services.
Justin Resnick MA, PhDPsychologist
Dr. Justin Resnick brings a PhD in clinical psychology and a certificate in Marital and Family Therapy based on a Strengths-Resiliency model. In addition, he is completing a specialization in Educational Psychology in Israel and works part-time in the Jerusalem Municipal Schools.
Justin is a gifted COUPLES THERAPIST, who regularly teaches a Strengths-Based Couple Therapy approach which he developed. He is known for his BRIEF COUPLES INTERVENTION (1-3 sessions) for those couples who are unsure if they are ready to commit to couples therapy, as well as for couples in acute conflict. This brief intervention is consistently described by clients as being deeply affirming and moving, educational and powerfully reconnecting – even for couples who have experienced long periods of alienation.
Justin has worked extensively with MEN and BOYS who struggle to express their emotions, struggle to manage ANGER, lack motivation and suffer from depression or low self-confidence. He works with school-age and teenage boys, as well as men of all ages.
Dr. Resnick also coaches parents on PARENTING ISSUES, including children who are challenging, sensitive and DEFIANT, as well as those with emotional regulation and SENSORY ISSUES. Among the various approaches he uses to guide parents, Justin has studied the AYEKA Parent Guidance Method for five years, a breakthrough approach for helping children and teens who have failed to respond to therapy or refuse to participate in therapy, and children with volatile and OUT-OF-CONTROL behavior, stealing, aggression and school refusal. Dr. Resnick is also familiar with the school system and learning issues, and is comfortable interfacing with school staff.
All of Dr. Resnick’s work aims to be strengths-based, affirming, connected to intuition and body, and emotionally direct. He works extensively with HAREDI COUPLES as well as orthodox and nonreligious families, and works fluently in HEBREW and in ENGLISH.
